...Atmosphere was very unstable.....
Really good way of explaining that....one came close once in Ohio...spooky ! Dark! Doesn’t fel “normal”.
You are talking about the one near Norman right?
Tornado down into Lake Thunderbird!...from the mass...
We have had everything in Texas and Oklahoma the past few days. Lines of thunderstorms. Along with super cells popping up and growing huge in just an hour or two.
This mass is huge!
Tell me about it! We live in west Fort Worth. Terrible what happened just south of here in Granbury. That was a sleepless night. Saying stuff could blow up here again Tuesday.
Oh wow....just stay safe!
The weathermen all say these things can linger then suddenly it will drop a Tornado.
I just saw that at the Lake....happened fast!
Thanks! I am going to watch. One thing that usually makes me feel better for folks up there is that most have shelters at least.
Fox live feed on tornados....
Opps another on the ground! North side of Lake sucking up water....now eAST...NOW ON nORTHEAST CORNER tHUNDERBIRD lAKE
Texas looks clear today, so far. Problems today are further north.
Thanks for radar link...this is wicked!
One that went over the lake is growing.....strong rotation debree ball on the ground... power flashes...north of Franklin road.
Possible touchdown in Emporia, KS
Ripped from weatherunderground:
The tornado just moving off Lake Thunderbird is a rare situation... the circulation is close enough to the radar that radar is able to sample some of the sub-cloud parts of the storm, with the 0.5deg tilt beam centerline at ~250ft.
The tornado signature (TS, not TVS) is roughly 0.25-0.50mi peak-to-peak.
It just hit something,,,mega power flashes....this has multiple vortex’s....and it’s growing...huge thing! Massive and picking up strength even more...gonna be a beast!
Uh oh... did it hit the cooling area of a power plant?
If folks aren’t watching this beast they need to....huge monster tornado forming...
Don;t know...but fireengines were heard right away....
Their telling people to tweet, call and warn people to get in safe places because this thing is a monster...going east....”Pink” needs to find safety ...and all those in tit;s path...very dangerous!
The weatherman are overwhelmed with how large this is....
