- Finally. In a season that has
seen few severe storms and even fewer tornadoes, all that hard
work paid off. Today we were able to witness a fantastic, long
lived tornado near La Grange, Wyoming. The
tornado took on many different shapes from a thick cone to a
slender trunk, then to a slender, twisty rope. It was on the
ground for about 25 minutes and we had a great view from on top
of a hill.
- This tornado was also intercepted
by the VORTEX 2 research team who have an armada of about 40
instrumented vehicles manned by about 100 scientists and students.
This is probably the most studied tornado of all time. The data
will be analyzed for years to come.
