Hello ATS, about a week ago there was a tornado in Dexter, Michigan, which is about 45 minutes to an hour outside of Detroit. Luckily due to their
warning systems no one was hurt. The tornado damaged roughly 100 (if i'm recalling correctly, most of this info is from local news weather source) and
was a class F3 to F5 (again didn't get the full story from the news). Tornadoes in michigan are somewhat of a rare occurrence but they do happen.
What struck me as odd is that they said there were 11,000 lightning strikes. Is this normal with tornadoes? Is this even the correct number or is it
grossly overestimated? Just looking for some answers here...
