The threat of tornadoes has been more real than ever in New Jersey. As of June 18, 12 tornado warnings have been issued for the state, more than double the second high (5) back in 2011. For this episode of On The Road, we'll explore the anatomy of a tornado warning, from how it gets issue to confirming one on the ground in Greenwich Township!
On The Road, a New Jersey Press Association Award Winning segment in 2018, is back in 2019 with more interviews, more adventures and more digging out some of the coolest places nature can bring in the area. Tune in as we take you through South Jersey, and the year, with theme months.
