(May 16th, 2011) Viewers tuning in to watch Jay Leno tonight will be met with some more-serious subject matter than usual. After appearing last fall to promote Storm Chasers on Discovery, Reed will be Jay's guest once again this evening, this time advocating for severe weather preparedness and awareness, as well as to urge continued support for recovery efforts in the wake of the overwhelming month of deadly tornadoes parts of the U.S. endured during April. Reed and crew experienced these outbreaks first-hand, beginning with Iowa on the 9th, then Mississippi (15th), Missouri and Illinois (19th), then finally with the modern-day Super Outbreak in Mississippi and Alabama on April 27th; they then spent several days afterward assisting with relief efforts in and around Tuscaloosa. -- Reed is pictured above with members of Alabama Task Force 1, an elite search and rescue unit in Tuscaloosa after the city was devastated by an EF-4 tornado on the 27th. The timing for this renewed awareness couldn't be better, as the middle to latter part of this week into next week look to become especially active once again, with tornadoes possible across portions of the central and southern Great Plains. Stay tuned for more updates on the developing weather situation, and be sure to catch Reed on Leno this evening -- check your local listings!

Well, he had a lot of things to cover in a short time. Solid work there Reed on letting the nation know we still have many of our own still to care for.
