From the NWS: 
NEW FOR 2021: Severe T-storm Warnings will include damage threat tags when higher end wind damage &/or hail are expected. When a Severe T-storm Warning w/Destructive Damage Threat is issued, it will alert on cell phones as a Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA)

Do you know the difference between severe weather WATCHES and WARNINGS?

A WATCH means severe storms or tornadoes might form and affect your area.

A WARNING means it’s time to take action!
A severe storm or tornado is expected in your area

Did you know damaging straight line or downburst winds from a tstorm can do as much damage as a weak-moderate tornado? Large hail can also injure those caught outdoors & cause significant property damage. Taking severe tstorm warnings seriously is a must!
