The Tornado Videos Thread
« on: February 26, 2021, 09:25:12 PM »
Didn't see a thread where we can share some videos of tornadoes for fun, so I decided to make one.

It could be your own content, a repost of a famous tornado video, or any tornado video you found online that you thought would be cool to share.

1. Compliation of tornadoes in Europe: https://youtu.be/a4wh4Ct1Ygo

2. Tornado hits house, April 2015: https://youtu.be/Szwd-0tatdo

3. One of my favorite tornado videos- the classic Andover 1991 tornado: https://youtu.be/s_D4TyZxHO0


Disclaimer: I'm not expressing excitement for death and destruction; rather, I'm interested in the power of nature. What I don't need to hear is a comment along the lines of "you're condoning weather that kills people." This is a weather forum- we share the reality of severe weather here. Don't like it? Post in a different thread.


Anyways, share away!

Wow- I don’t think I’ve seen this with the close-up zoom on the funnel making contact with the ground at the beginning when it was still in its rope phase. That hay bale rolling (at about 03:00). ::wow::

Wasn’t the forward motion on that tornado just ridiculously slow? Like less than 5 miles per hour? Imagine having 200+ Mph winds for several minutes.

In the hardest-hit area it slowed down to like 2 miles per hour (walking speed) but its overall motion was about 5-10 MPH.  It also moved West-Southwest along a gravity wave/boundary.

Here is a drone video I took of the Tishomingo ME tornado last spring. Unfortunately my drone got sucked into the inflow and was not recovered. 

Top speed of the drone as it was riding into the meso was around 80mph

April 16th, 1998 produced the only F5 in Tennessee's history. On the same day a deadly tornado hit downtown Nashville, an F5 tornado touched down in Lawrence County.

Since the Fujita scale was created, only 3 countries have experienced F5/EF5 tornado damage. All have occurred in the United States except for 1 in Manitoba on 6/22/2007 and 1 in Russia on 6/9/1984.

This is one of the most memorable tornado videos because it just shows you that even a tiny tornado can do violent damage.

We're remembering the Nashville, Mt. Juliet and Cookeville tornado of March 3, 2020 that killed more than 20 people.

While most tornadoes occur in the traditional tornado alley on the Plains, it is noteworthy that the biggest outbreaks in history have occured from the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys into the Deep South--not the Great Plains.  April 1974 and 2011 are the two best examples.  Of course, since this area is far more populated than the Great Plains, it's where the largest loss of life and property usually occurs.  At the very least, tornadoes have a much higher chance of hitting man-made structures here than the wide open Plains.

big reason for that is there is a better return from the gulf to our area than out in the open plains .

Deadliest outbreaks and largest outbreaks are usually in our region , also the reason midwest and plains used to get more attention is the fact most of those outbreaks are in the daytime  and with flat land where you can see for miles the tornadoes are more photogenic because they can be seen because of the terrain .
Dixie alley is far more dangerous due to the potential for the nocturnal outbreaks, rain wrapped tornadoes and higher population (arky, miss, bama and middle western TN) imo
