* UNTIL 500 PM MDT

* AT 408 PM MDT... NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR INDICATED A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM CAPABLE OF PRODUCING HALF DOLLAR SIZE HAIL... AND DESTRUCTIVE WINDS IN EXCESS OF 70 MPH. THIS STORM WAS LOCATED 11 MILES SOUTH OF HURRICANE... OR 18 MILES EAST OF ST GEORGE... MOVING NORTHEAST AT 25 MPH.

* LOCATIONS IN THE WARNING INCLUDE... HURRICANE... LA VERKIN... TOQUERVILLE... VIRGIN... ROCKVILLE AND SPRINGDALE

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

DOPPLER RADAR HAS INDICATED ROTATION WITHIN THIS STORM. WHILE NOT IMMEDIATELY LIKELY... A TORNADO MAY STILL DEVELOP. IF A TORNADO IS SPOTTED... ACT QUICKLY AND MOVE TO A PLACE OF SAFETY IN A STURDY STRUCTURE... SUCH AS A BASEMENT OR SMALL INTERIOR ROOM.
