TUESDAY, MAY 3, 1949 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK/> COURIER NEWS Warning Service For Winds Asked Accurate Tornado Forecasts, However, N Almost Impossible " By Gordon Brawn WASHINGTON, May 3—</Pj—A tornado warning service was suggested today by Rep. Brooks (D-La). He's taken It up with the federal Weather Bureau and is hopeful thai something c*\n toe worked out lo warn residents of tornado area? Rt least when conditions are sucl that a howling windsLrom might fill ike. After a conference with official.? nf the agency, Brooks said they had agreed to see what could be done, at least on an experimental basis. Coming from a district In Northem Louisar.a which Is struck by tornadoes at frenquent intervals, Brooks has a high interest in the matter. Also, in recent days damaging tornadoes have hit Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas. "Maybe they can't toll just where A tornado would strike," lie said, "but if they conld just alert people whenever tornadoes are possible it would help," Brooks told a reporter "We t6ke steps to prevent floods Here we have something that causes million of damage every year am costs many lives—and we don'I even try to do anything about it.' Forecasters Ilouhtful t Brooks said the forcasting serv- -e hesitated somewhat at predicting tornadoes for lear of causing panic among wide areas. "But I favor calling n spade a' spade," said the representative. He discussed the problems In a teller to Francis W. Reicheldcrler, chief of the Weather Bureau. "It is probably not possible under the present development of meteorological studies to predict with any degree of accuracy the time or place when a tornado will strike community." Brooks, wrote. "I have felt for some time, however, that atmospheric conditions in which tornadoes develop can be predicted in areas alerted as to these conditions. "I have also felt that some suggestions might properly be made by the United States as to the methods that people In threatened areas might use in protecting themselves against a tornado, such sHt trenches, cellars or other places Seven Perish As Fire Razes 2-Family Home H1NTON.
