Definitely a news video here to watch to get a good summation of what people there have been through:

The Weather Channel met was actually chasing the tornado that hit Joplin. Unfortunately he was not ahead on the dryline and what they saw was rain-wrapped. They pulled into the western side of Joplin about 5 min behind the tornado.

And - If I were anywhere between Alton to St. Louis to Fredricktown- north to south- I would take cover. At the least you are going to get hammered with major storm activity.

And there is a 'right turning' mesoscale storm running right over Fayetteville right now. No warnings out though.

No sound in this last video. I don't know why, but it isn't necessary.

I was watching the Basehunters vid this morning. The Joplin tornado went from touchdown to full wedge in under 30 seconds. I have never seen one form that fast - in r/l or on video.

Hey Clouds, glad you were able to give an update. So sorry no word from your staff yet. Keep praying and stay strong. We are pulling for everyone there.

Horrible to hear about the dad and his son! My prayers are with the family.

The scanner feed for Jasper County Law Enforcement is online again. It was knocked offline for a few hours due to a power outage. Since it is provided by a local resident, you might expect another outage or two since it is a disaster area and there is fluctuating power.

After watching some of the videos newly posted, I am stunned!! That is an F5 I am almost positive. The bark is literally stripped from the trees! Solid concrete buildings destroyed! I cannot imagine looking out the window and seeing a tornado of this magnitude! Only in my nightmares!

I think that they do. I have heard that if it were not for the warning systems, more people would have died. I believe that they had a full twenty minuets before the tornado hit. I'm not sure how much more warning we (meteorologists/storm chasers, etc.) can give us. Isn't it usually only just mere moments before a warning is issued?

I agree...

And just like the Alabama tornados, many keep describing it as it the towns were bombed...

I went and tried to check them out but it would seem there are only two videos of his on his channel? Can you fill me in as to what I'm supposed to be looking for? Thanks!

EDIT:
Adepto Perfectus = dutchsinse

Is this the channel you were pointing me to? It was spelled slightly different than what you suggested.

For anyone wondering- "Do we have more tornadoes now than we used to?"

Here is your answer: Tornado Graph by Year

And here is the 'why', in brief- from a morning of april 27th (Tuscaloosa) warning post about incoming storms:




About the stronger storms. This is something that has been theorized for a while now - and something I have believed would happen as well. It's 3rd grade science at it's root. The main problem is that the pacific waters are warmer- which moves the Jet Stream into a new track -higher latitudes in the northwest and then this odd dipping loop into the center of the country. This is pulling down colder air than normal from the upper atmosphere. At the same time the Gulf area is warmer and the Jet Stream is creating low pressure systems which act like a 'vacuum' - sucking the warmer very moist Gulf air into collision course with the cold air over a large area. Basically it is a result of warmer ocean waters overall. But this pattern is now in place - possibly for the rest of the season.

First of all, my heart goes out to all the people in southern Mo. right now. I used to live in the Ozarks back in the early '80's and I still remember some of the hellacious storms that take place down there.

Anyway, I was reading some posts this morning about the rumbling sounds out on the east coast, most recently in New York, and seeing a video of a "cloud making machine" that NASA has on the Mississippi delta. I was just wondering if there could possibly be some correlation between that and the F-5 in Alabama, and what is more than likely the F-5 in Joplin.

Any thoughts on this?

As a meteorologist I have to say the Dutchsince 'warning' video was ripped right off of the NOAA mesoscale chat from well before the storms hit. Chasers were already packing gear when he made this 'warning' video because the storm threat was well developed and already plotted. Please don't let this guy bull# you any more. He follows weather/chaser forums- probably the same ones I am on.
