The NWS posted a map of the United States, indicating possible storms in the Ozark Mountains down to the Ohio River Valley.
These two areas were colored yellow, indicating a “slight” risk of thunderstorms, while the rest of the site was colored dark green, indicating a “marginal” risk of thunderstorms.
However, many were quick to point out that the color code the card looked exactly like one of the beloved humanoid turtles as one person wrote, “Why does time look like a ninja turtle?”
Another said: ‘Southeast looks like a ninja turtle.
A third person wrote: “It’s official. Mother Nature is trolling us.
While another commented: “Okay you’re pulling our legs with this one aren’t you?”
Severe thunderstorms and heat warnings have been issued for many southern states in the United States.
The Washington Post reports that about 50 million Americans are expected to see heat exceed 105 degrees Fahrenheit (40.5 Celsius), while parts of the South and Midwest are at risk of severe thunderstorms.
Earlier this month, residents of Sioux Falls, South Dakota were shaken after a massive storm created ominous dark green hues in the sky that looked like something straight out of stranger things.
A Twitter user by the name aafaque33 posted a video of the terrifying storm, with much disbelief as one user wrote: “It’s a green monster.”
Another said: “My grandfather always told me if you see this turquoise/green Color like the patina of copper, it’s time to take cover! I’ve seen it a few times too; he was right.”
A third person commented: “Wicked look! Wow, so wild.
While another wrote: “Scary on an ‘apocalyptic’ scale of scary.”
“One of the rules is if you’re chasing a storm or a tornado or if you’re out there in the plains and you see a big storm with green skies, that means there’s a lot of hail in it. And that means not driving in this storm, because your car could be destroyed,” he said.
He added: “The sunset and everything played with the lighting too and some people said it was the most amazing thing they had ever seen.”
