Get hooked on tornado history! On-going project to compile an interactive database with in depth tornado history.
UPDATE: NOAA's #GOES16 tracked the #lightning & #severe #storms that moved through #Texas last night, including the devastating #DallasTornado, that struck suburban #Richardson. The #tornado destroyed buildings, flipped cars, and cut power to 175K people. #dfwwx #etxwx #txwx
#weatherpicofday lower tip of a condensation funnel appears 'suspended' ~ 80 ft above the southeastern Colorado prairie next to a solitary tree & windmill near the ranch community of Campo, CO on 31 May 2010.
Some images of the EF3 #DallasTornado (2019, left) look eerily similar to shots of the April 1957 tornado that crushed portions of Oak Cliff, Winnetka Heights, Kessler and West Dallas (right). The twister from over 60 years ago, almost fittingly, was also rated F3.
Wow, look at the scar left behind from the tornado in Dallas last night. Image from Josh Crowder who was flying from Tulsa to Houston
2:48 PM - An NWS survey team has determined that the estimated maximum winds for the tornado in North Dallas is 140 mph, consistent with an EF-3 rating. We will share more information later this afternoon/evening with additional details. #dfwwx #txwx
#weatherpicofday: 10/20/2019 the #DallasTornado moments after passes just 4 city blocks behind me looking East towards Brookshire Drive from Hillcrest Road. This was taken just moments after it completely destroyed this housing development. #TXwx
If NWS #damage survey finds the N. #Dallas #tornado to be EF4, it would be an outlier for this time of year. Of 631 total F/EF4+ U.S. #tornadoes since 1950, only 2 previously occurred in the last 3 weeks of October.
- Oct. 14, 1966 (F5 - N. Iowa)
- Oct. 29, 1956 (F4 - Nebraska)
South Norman, OK EF1 Tornado – Oct 21, 2017! Developed just north of State HWY 9 & moved east damaging a business and destroying a shed. It turned SE and caused damage at the Riverwind Casino and Hotel. https://t.co/c4y6kayqsr #okwx @NWSNorman #wxhistory
Whoa... Insane view of Dallas tornado, that moved through moments ago.
Debris from North Dallas tornado lofted to nearly 20,000 feet seen by dual pol Doppler radar. Likely a significant (EF2 or higher) tornado h/t @KevinLighty #txwx #dfwwx
Confirmed Tornado (by radar) in N Dallas right now just north of Love Field! Moving East! #txwx
