National Weather Service issues tornado watch for Kent and Sussex County


KENT COUNTY -- The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for Kent and Sussex County, Delaware. 

The watch began at 12:47 p.m. on April 3 and is set to last until 7 p.m.

Three counties in Maryland are also covered by the watch: Caroline, Queen Anne's, and Talbot Counties. 

According to the service, tornado watches mean that tornadoes are possible in the area, so residents should get prepared. A tornado warning, on the other hand, means that a tornado has been sighted or indicated by a weather radar.  

The watch was sent by the service's Mount Holly, NJ location.
