Truth is WBTV's Eric Thomas is using a robo tweet program that on a regular basis tweets crazy stuff. Case in point yesterday's "The National Weather Service has issued a "Child Abduction Emergency" until 11:30 AM for Cherokee-SC, Chester-SC,..."
Not really sure about what is going on, but clearly the NWS doesn't issue Child Abduction Emergency statements that expire like a severe thunderstorm warning.
Which should give you a serious case of doubt, if you are relying on twitter to give you weather updates.
No response from Eric Thomas, but since his tweeter account is just a robot why should anyone be surprised?
