Not much to see in this video but the audio is disturbing to listen to.

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?


The IPCC has prognosticated stronger storms now for about 12 years or so- developing just as we see has happened. See the post immediately above yours for as to 'why'.

There is this guy, 'Carnyart', who's YouTube channel I'd been following for several months. He's been finding and noting some very interesting MidWestern US weather pattern things since May 20, and putting these vids up. He reminds me of Dutchsinse. So, I'm gonna put this link so you can see if you want. However, it might not work. Last time I tried this, a music video was there instead. Some kind of coverup mischief going on? If I check it myself, and it don't work, I'll have to be right back with a different link.

Yeah, the innevitable music video was there instead, just like I feared.
(When I try to put his direct channel there, instead of going to youtube, -then- his channel, -from- it.)

This link works.

Looks like we have an outbreak forming south-east of Springfield over Westplains. Heads-up southwest Missouri, north Arkansas and north west Tennessee.

Deadly Tornados Strike Again


The link above hold some tragic photos of the damage and the people who have been effected.

I couldn't help but cry while looking at them.
My heart hurts and aches for them and I wish there was something I could do.
I just can't take the suffering of others anymore.

I just don't know what to say, My heart goes out to them and that they find some hope or peace after this event.

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.


Thanks for the heads-up. I don't follow this fellow, but it was suggested by another poster that I go and look them up. I was slightly suspicious of it (his channel) because I just don't know enough about weather and the like. Again, thanks.

The IPCC has been prognosticating these heightened storms for over a decade now.

The IPCC is comprised of tens of thousands of scientists and meteorologists worldwide.

The explanation is extremely simple and to fall for other 'johnny come lately' stories is to fall for the BS propagated by those who want to misdirect you from the real conspiracy - that is the real conspiracy of those who want to negate the models of Climate Change. The Climate Change weather models were developed years ago and are happening now in front of your very eyes.

I have close friends located on E. 24th street off of Duquesne in Joplin. Does anyone know of the damage in that area? I can not get ahold of anyone and am very scared!

Now we have a Mesoscale developing over the entire eastern half of Oklahoma - get ready to duck if you are in a line east of Oklahoma City from north border to south.

www.spc.noaa.gov...

MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0896
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0208 PM CDT MON MAY 23 2011

AREAS AFFECTED...WRN OK...NW TX

CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH LIKELY

VALID 231908Z - 232045Z

A SEVERE THREAT WILL LIKELY DEVELOP ACROSS WRN OK AND NORTHWEST TX
LATE THIS AFTERNOON AS STORMS INITIATE. INITIALLY...LARGE HAIL WILL
THE GREATEST THREAT BUT A TORNADO THREAT WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE AS
THE STORMS BECOME MORE MATURE LATE THIS AFTERNOON. WW ISSUANCE WILL
BE LIKELY ONCE INITIATION OF MULTIPLE STORMS BECOMES MORE CERTAIN.

AT THE SFC...A 1002 MB LOW IS LOCATED IN FAR NE TX PANHANDLE WITH A
DRYLINE EXTENDING SWD INTO WEST TX. EAST OF THE DRYLINE...SFC
DEWPOINTS ARE IN THE UPPER 60S AND LOWER 70S F WITH MESOANALYSIS
ESTIMATING MLCAPE VALUES FROM 3500 TO 4500 J/KG ACROSS MUCH OF WRN
OK AND NW TX. VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS SOME CUMULUS TOWERS IN
BECKHAM COUNTY OK. ATTM...THE CUMULUS FIELD IS VERY SMALL BUT IS
EXPECTED TO EXPAND OVER THE NEXT HOUR OR TWO AS LOW-LEVEL
CONVERGENCE INCREASES ALONG AND TO THE EAST OF THE DRYLINE. THIS
ALONG WITH INCREASING LARGE-SCALE ASCENT ASSOCIATED WITH A SHORTWAVE
TROUGH MOVING INTO THE SRN PLAINS FROM THE WEST SHOULD RESULT IN
VIGOROUS STORM INITIATION. AS STORMS INCREASE IN COVERAGE...THE
STRONG INSTABILITY AND DEEP LAYER SHEAR OF 40 TO 45 KT SHOULD
SUPPORT SUPERCELL DEVELOPMENT. LARGE HAIL WILL BE LIKELY AND A
TORNADO THREAT MAY ALSO DEVELOP ESPECIALLY AS THE STORMS MATURE AND

Good God...
Absolutely terrifying. Utterly horrifying. The sounds are enough to send chills down my spine. "I love you man" ... the guy is preparing for his own death. I am literally in tears listening to this.

Question: is what Dutchsince is saying possibly accurate? He talks about weather modifiction indicated by numerous ground clutter echo"s on the national radar map for a particular region of the country mostly occuring in the midwest. Check out Accuweather's national radar after sundown, in one region you will get multiple ground clutter looking circles soon to be followed by violent weather in that same region. The echo's appears also to have a pattern to the cluster.

God bless the folks of Joplin

I just posted yesterday that ATS should have a News show, since there are so many ATS members right on the scenes of things going on. But this has got to be the most powerful live reporting of an event I have ever heard in my life.

I am in Arkansas and it looks like in the next 48 hrs we are going to have a bad storm from Texarkana, to Little Rock.

You are Amazing to hang in there, my prayers go out to all in Joplin and ATS members with friends and family there.

This is a video of the Clouds the day before the Storm. Looks like perfect holes punched in them.
Everyone watch out for these clouds, where ever you are. [if already posted sorry]

Here is a map that may give you an idea of location and damage.

Google Map of damage etc. in Joplin

You can click on one of the locations/pictures listed there and then click on "directions", enter their address and get an idea how close they are to it. Seems your friends are about 1.5 miles from it?

We watched this storm build 15 miles east of us yesterday afternoon. It was building fast and massive. It took around an hour and a half to hit them. I have lived in tornado country all my life, over 45yrs, and the weather is different for these storms from normal.
It seems as though there is not the big difference in temp changes as before. You could lose 20 degrees in 15 minutes to get these to build. Cold and dry fronts moving through. Now they just pop up without it.

I just got back to a computer, I haven't caught up on the last few pages of thread yet, but I have a little more news.

A friend of mine works for a big dealership at 30th and Rangeline, and they are using the service department of the dealership as a temporary morgue. He has been told that the dealership won't be reopening for the foreseeable future, so he is out of a job.

The girl he is dating is a nurse at St. John's Hospital. She is ok, but she has been told the hospital is probably beyond repair, and won't be rebuilt. It is looking like a total loss, so that puts another several thousand people out of work.

They canceled the graduation ceremony for Webb City High School, but they did go ahead and have school today. They are using the gym, auditorium, theatre, and any other spare rooms as shelters for now.

I have now gotten in touch with several more of my friends that lived in Joplin, and several of them did lose their homes, or large pieces of their homes. The view from 20th and Duquesne Rd looking Westward supposedly looks like a barren desert. All of the businesses, homes, traffic lights, electric lines, and all signs of civilization are just gone from that viewpoint.

Several people were out helping in the search and rescue last night, and they have some gruesome stories of casualties. Missing limbs and eyes and people impaled with debris. The worst part is that some of those grotesque injuries were not life-threatening, so they had to wait for treatment indefinitely!

One friend of mine lived near 20th and Maiden Lane, his home was spared, but the windows were broken. He boarded up his front door and went out to help in the search and rescue, and when he got home this morning, his home had been looted. He was devastated by that after all he had seen the night before and all the help he had tried to give. It is awful to think people are so evil. On the other side of that coin, many businesses are giving away food and drinks and first aid supplies. One eye doctor has opened his shop and is fixing glasses, replacing contacts, and doing triage for free out of his office. There are many reports of people just giving away whatever they have to try and help the refuges and rescue workers.

People that followed this thread last night and saw the photos and videos have now ventured out this morning and they are telling me the photos and videos don't even begin to prepare you for what the devastation looks like first hand. The worst part is the forlorn and lost look of so many people just shuffling about and not knowing where to start the clean up.

Just heard a new update on the death toll: 116.


But seven have been rescued!!! And when it comes to that number every one counts!


JOPLIN, Mo. — The death toll from a tornado that shredded the southwest Missouri city of Joplin now stands at 116.

City Manager Mark Rohr says seven people have also been rescued since the storm struck Sunday evening. Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon says he's "optimistic that there are still lives out there to be saved." Read more: www.chron.com...

Again, my thought are with those in the area & those that have friends and family there.
