Tornado footage Case Studies

Check this footage out of the Oklahoma City Tornado 1999:

It also shows brief clips of the Jarrell tornado.

Incredible violent tornado but what astounds me in this footage is the visiblity due to haze!

Awesome video there, thanks for the links Jimmy.  Those chasers certainly pushed their luck with the Oklahoma City tornado!  Lucky they found reverse gear!
hmmm June 2nd......

I must say that some video I saw of the Oklahoma City tornado as it approached the city was up there with the best supercell and tornado footage I have ever seen. I think it would be worthwhile purchasing the DVD from Jeff Petroski of this event as he traversed the tornado through the suburbs.

Wooow, first time I saw this one, Andover F5 (before it hit Andover). Listen to the rumble, nuts!

Thanks for highlighting those links.   I've always thought there wasn't many photos/videos of the May 1999 Ok tornado considering the size of it and where it struck.  Its as though there were few chasers on it.

Yes that Andover video is one of the greats.  It seems the 1990's was an active decade for strong tornadoes.

However,

When it comes to footage, the footage of the same tornado but dark, very large multivortex passing behind an estate with white houses swamping them in size is what got me hooked on tornadoes. If someone can get hold of that footage, it's far more spectacular.

In regards to super outbreak, the outbreak last year March 12th 2006 would be comparable in numbers:

http://www.spc.noaa.gov/climo/reports/060312_rpts.html

to the 1974 outbreak and seems to stand at 140 tornado reports - not sure what the final number of tornadoes were given the long track natures of some of the tornadoes. March 12th 2006 was a significant event with rapid moving tornadoes such that there were some quite emotional discussions from the very experienced chasers - some who were around in the 1970's or at least in the 1980's.

Anyone want to look for videos from that day or outbreaks about that time. Some impressive videos posted I recall.

You bet,  last March was an impressive event. Let's not forget the supercell that intitiated in NW Oklahoma and tracked all the way to Indiana. To me, that stood out above and beyond any of the tornadoes, as a meteorological spectacle.

I  must say, the information in Wikipedia is getting better and better http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March_2006_Tornado_Outbreak_Sequence
