It was nice reading this on the following statement from the OUN WFO…
SEVERE WEATHER STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORMAN OK
835 PM CDT WED MAY 12 2010
…A TORNADO WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 915 PM CDT FOR NORTHERN
WASHITA AND EASTERN CUSTER COUNTIES…
AT 834 PM CDT…RESEARCH METEOROLOGISTS ARE REPORTING A DEVELOPING
TORNADO LOCATED ABOUT 3 MILES EAST OF CLINTON. RADAR INDICATES THAT
THE STORM IS MOVING NORTHEAST AT 40 MPH.
* LOCATIONS IN THE WARNING INCLUDE CLINTON AND WEATHERFORD.
THIS INCLUDES INTERSTATE 40 BETWEEN MILE MARKERS 64 AND 85.
TORNADOES ARE ESPECIALLY DANGEROUS AT NIGHT BECAUSE THEY ARE HARD TO
SEE. TAKE COVER NOW. IF A BASEMENT IS NOT AVAILABLE…MOVE TO AN
INTERIOR ROOM OR HALLWAY ON THE LOWEST FLOOR. LEAVE MOBILE HOMES AND
VEHICLES FOR REINFORCED SHELTER. STAY AWAY FROM WINDOWS.
Research meteorologists, aka Vortex2 crew members, were watching a right-mover in western OK. Indeed, it was nice seeing the hard working research folks given credit where credit is due.
