Is being on the edge of the light green, in a location where nobody is used to tornadoes, something to worry about? (I live barely outside it, but as it travels from west to east, it will enter my location.)

Light green means generic, non-severe thunderstorms. They may (depending on the environment) have a brief severe one pop up for some 65-mph wind gusts or small hail, but I doubt you have anything to worry about.

This season is where the tornadoes happen the most. Risky environment....

March equinox - tornadoes.

September Equinox - hurricanes.

For something road-related:

Go here, and click "Interstates". Find all the extra corridors. (ME 6? Really?)

Part of I-22 is missing though...

Part of I-22 is missing though...
Ohio:
- US 33 freeway NW of Columbus
- OH 11
- OH 2 freeway sections
Dotted/dashed lines exist on the map for the following freeway or expressways:
- US 22 at Steubenville
- US 23 N of Columbus
- A single dot for US 24 southwest of Toledo
- US 30
- US 33 between Columbus and I-77. One of the dots is Athens, not sure where the other is
- US 35
- US 52 southeast of Portsmouth

Michigan (mostly solid lines, unlike Ohio):
- US 10 between Clare and Bay City
- US 23 between Toledo and Flint
- US 31 between South Bend and Benton Harbor, and north of Muskegon
- US 127 between Jackson and Lansing, and between what looks like Mt Pleasant and I-75 south of Grayling
- US 131 north of Kalamazoo
- M-14 east of Ann Arbor
- M-59 freeway section east of Pontiac

Kentucky (also mostly solid lines):
- Cumberland Pkwy
- US 23/KY 80 between I-64 and I-75 in the southeast of the state (this one seems so random to me).
- WKY Pkwy between I-69 and I-65
- Bluegrass Pkwy
- Mountain Pkwy
- Audubon Pkwy

Indiana doesn't seem to have that much outside of interstates besides the US 20/31 loop at South Bend.

In the light green areas, tornado risk is < 2% and severe wind and/or hail risk is < 5%
