An intense supercell is located just northeast of Vera and is moving east/southeast at 25 MPH. This storm looks very strong on radar and has a potent hail core. Hail up to the size of baseballs and damaging wind gusts over 70 MPH are a risk as this storm moves towards Seymour. At present rate this storm will be moving into Seymour in the next 20-30 minutes. Those in Seymour should move vehicles into a sheltered area now and than move into a shelter. Be away from windows as wind-driven large hail could easily break windows.
