OKC extreme weather

Man at this point we almost need a sticky thread and have skinsfaninok check in daily.

Just hope everyone out there is finding safety.

Re: OKC extreme weather

It's been a LONG couple weeks here guys. I was underground for a few hours but it seemed like days.. My car was pretty damaged but thankfully that is it, A woman and child were sucked out of their car and were Killed. Just terrible stuff for this state lately. I did see STL got hit but IDK how bad it was. Thanks for checking on me buddy.

Re: OKC extreme weather

Isn't the storm season just beginning for the mid-west? Not sure how much more these people are going to be able to take at this rate.

That's one great thing about living here, everyone understanding the severity of these storms so we usually just let anyone in that could fit down there. On a bright side, it's June and training camp starts next month!

Not about over, it peaks in May... June is the 3rd most active month. Doesn't really wind down until July.

Re: OKC extreme weather

El Reno tornado, at 2.6 miles across, was widest on record - U.S. News

Record setting tornado. Hard to believe a tornado with the base of 2.6 miles wide.

It was truly a rare event. The cell not only broke records, but turned out to be an EF5 tornado with a neighboring tornado spun anticyclonically (opposite direction).

I think what ended up happening was two supercells merged, which caused the tornado to switch direction so fast, and coupled with city traffic (leaving no exit routes) doomed those caught in it's path.

Very sad because Tim Samaras was a pioneer in tornado and lightning research.

Re: OKC extreme weather

Also keep in mind, that there hasn't necessarily been MORE tornadoes. In fact, last year was a record low year.

I think there are a few factors making them seem more intense.

1) There are more people living in Tornado Alley. There may have been tons of EF5's out in the middle of no-where, but all they did was knock over a bunch of tres.

2) Media coverage has been much more pronounced lately. Tornadoes make headlines more than they used to, especially since there are many more, "extreme videos" and what not.

It may appear that tornadic weather is more intense, but that may not necessarily be the case.
