The interesting visible satellite animation of August 13, 2005

What happened

On May 12, 2006, it was a marginal day for severe thunderstorms. The main mitigating factor for having severe storms was that the moisture wasn't very high. As a result, a tough decision about whether or not to issue a watch and subsequent warnings was made: they were issued. The largest reported hail was in Vermilion, AB, at about the time of frames 28-30 on the animation. Dime-sized (18 mm) hail was reported--not quite at severe levels.

A few things to note: Would you have issued watches? Warnings?
