The National Weather Service in Raleigh said they issued a tornado warning at 3:57. A cop called a funnel or tornado in at 3:54. Warning didn’t go over NWS radio until 4:00pm. Phone warnings for me took until 3:59. Kids were put at risk, people were put at risk. If the tornado strengthened a little people very likely could have died as cars were crossing where the tornado crossed and a mobile home was hit.
Here is a site saying the warning was issued 3:55 pm, tornado seen on radar at 3:54pm I thought the warnings were automated but yeah 3:55 is not 3:57 and it was 4:00 when the NWS radio called it. My car clock is 2 minutes fast and you can see it in my videos. http://www.ncpiedmontweather.com/2014/04/page/3/
Again the National Storm Prediction Center says that damage occured at 3:56pm north of rt 24 near Stedman but the tornado had been on the ground for over 2 minutes as seen in damage to the sw and again the NWS radio broadcast is 4:00. http://www.spc.noaa.gov/climo/reports/140429_rpts.html
Corbell Rd was hit with the tornado a mile south of rt 24 as the tornado moved north https://www.google.com/maps/place/Corbell+Rd,+Stedman,+NCemail@example.com,-78.6983655,14z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x89ab0af3572247f3:0xe13de6e5fd996c3a
