WHEN TORNADOES AND SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS HIT THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN U-S LAST WEEK, MANY COUNTED ON THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FOR WARNINGS.

SCOTT FRIEDMAN, INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER FROM OUR NBC AFFILIATE IN DALLAS, HAS UNCOVERED SERIOUS QUESTIONS ABOUT STAFFING AT WEATHER SERVICE OFFICES, WHICH SOME FEAR MIGHT PREVENT THE BEST INFORMATION FROM GETTING OUT.

Q: you're living proof that early warning makes a difference?

A: Brooke Barnes/Tornado Survivor: "Absolutely - absolutely - I fully believe in it."

friedman track:

but documents obtained by nbc news from the union that represents weather service forecasters - show many of their offices are short-handed.

**as many as 5-hundred vacant postions nationwide.

**nearly 200 front line meteorologist positions

**and many of the cites affected are in the southern and central u-s -- including tornado alley.

DOES THIS SHORTAGE IMPACT SAFETY?
