Better safe than sorry

In our "hindsight" world, we can criticize UNCW all we want for releasing a warning "prematurely". But if they hadn't and it did touch down, who would be around to deal with the law suits and criticism they would have received. And if it did become a tornado, would they have been credited for acting decisively and for saving lives? And as far as the NWS - how about all those victims in the mid-west that were waiting for our government to make the call and didn't get it - how arrogant of that "forecaster"! I think UNCW acted appropriately and commend them!
