2. A documentary on the 1984 outbreak, which emphasis on Ivanovo, I assume. Some impressive photos of mangled automobiles (probably the most intense auto damage I've seen outside of North & South America, really) and some photos of leveled forests:
This was an interesting video. I hadn't seen most of that footage before. Not sure why it says 1985 instead of 1984. I thought it was just a typo, but even the narrator says 1985.

I noticed that the recommended videos brought up another one I had seen before but maybe some others haven't seen it. This one has the right date thankfully.

What was likely one of the most intense tornadoes in Japanese history struck the town of Mobara on 12/11/1990. Up to 1312 yards in width, this tornado completely destroyed 82 homes (some "wooden houses were destroyed without a trace") and damaged over 161 other homes. A 10-ton dump truck was thrown. Fujita gave this tornado an F4 rating.

Some crazy tornado photos that all have one thing in common:
Pilger, NE 6/16/14

Tuscaloosa, AL 4/27/11

Smithville, MS 4/27/11:

There's a similar one of Rainsville floating around out there.
Also, that Pilger one looks fake; I know it isn't but I can see how someone could find it incredulous or a photoshop, because how often would you see two tornadoes right after your neighborhood was struck?

Haha I was thinking the same thing when I first saw that image, however given that the source was LiveScience I figured the image was genuine. Definitely a once in a lifetime shot.

Yeah it’s real all right. I remember it was one of the first photos to show up on Twitter after Pilger got hit. It was uploaded minutes after the tornado left town irrc.

BTW, would any of our forum members in China be able to fill me in on what exactly happened in Xinghua, Jiangsu Province, China? I’m trying to figure out if a tornado has been confirmed and rated, and I suspect there was based on the damage photos I’ve seen.

Also, totally off topic, but I drove through Joplin yesterday and I’m really happy to see how they’ve bounced back. There’s still some construction sites along the path, but overall, it’s not that noticeable. The new hospital looks great too.

There were widespread 80+ mph straight-line winds across the Province though there might have been a few embedded tornadoes such as in Xinghua. Nothing officially confirmed though yet.

The likely tornado in Xinghua twisted transmission tower and threw cars, causing at least one dead but still nothing confirmed yet from Jiangsu Weather Bureau.
And yes, strong gust front brought widespread 70-80+ mph winds to Jiangsu and Zhejiang Province. The maximize winds recorded by weather station was over 107mph and the maximum 10-mins sustained winds was 63mph.

Surprised this hasn't been posted yet; Reed Timmer's video of the Manchester, SD tornado:


Tim Samaras placed several probes ahead of the tornado's path and one of them scored a direct hit. It recorded a pressure drop of 100 millibars in the span of five seconds, the deepest and fastest pressure drop ever recorded directly by any instrument in a weather event. The gravel was scoured from the road that the probe was placed in by the tornadic winds but when the probe was lifted there was still gravel underneath it.

The time when 100hpa pressure drop was recorded. Tornado quickly shrinked its size before hitting the probe.

There was an article estimated that pressure change at 30m level is about 40% larger than the pressure change near the ground level.
There was F4 damage near this probe. House destroyed, graves soured and cars tossed but trees seems not debarked.

I haven't been able to find many damage photos from this tornado, aside from ground spirals and some general destruction to the town.
