Not to detract from today's event, but this screengrab from Moravska Nova Ves, Czech Republic shows some of the most intense house damage from this tornado that I've seen so far. I see at least 2, maybe 3 homes with F4 damage here. What's interesting about the one in the middle, is that the exterior walls and roof structure stayed intact, but the interior walls and floors appear to have sustained total structural collapse:

Me and my friend collected information from mass media like tiktok and weibo, drew a chart to document how many tornadoes occurred in China this year, and so far, we've documented 114.While the long term year average for Chinese tornado number remains near 43, 2021 just spent less than 3 months spawning 2.62 times than that.It's maybe the most active tornado season nationalwide for this century. With the tornado outbreak still currently ongoing in Shandong Province, this number could easily break 120.
5.15 should be remarkable day, 30 tors (including suspected ones) were confirmed along Yangtze River through multiple Province

So, I recently found out that there are videos of extensive aerial surveys of several 5/31/85 tornado tracks, including Atlantic, Tionesta, Kane, Moshannon, Beaver Falls, Johnstown OH, Barrie and possibly Niles-Wheatland. I haven't had any luck tracking them down so far, partly because I haven't had much time to devote to it, but I know they exist(ed?) and were all either shown publicly or sold on home video.

Some sad news out of the recent tornadoes in China:
Actually this is the worst case senario you could imagine, a rain-wrapped wedge moving into an urban city.....hope these victims ok...
I don't count on local authorities to announce the total injuries or fatalities, cuz hiding this so-called "sensitive" information in China has always been a tradition.Typhoon Lekima in 2019 brought historic flash flood in Shandong Province and spawned no less than 2 tors, but so far I've never heard about the any economic loss or brief summary of this disaster, neither the tornadoes were confirmed.
I was held on to the opinion that Chinese enthusiasts and offical meteorologists come from different world, for those meteorologists, they're stodgy and conformist,as an enthusiast however, I really hope I can do my best the push the Chinese tornado research forward, that's why I just keep collecting information from mass media and urge those meteorologists and surveyors to do damage surveys or case analysis more closely.

Your efforts are definitely appreciated here, that’s for sure.

Was the death toll from Funing 2016 really 99? Such a weird figure, and part of me wonders if they didn’t want the official toll to go into the triple digits.

I swear I saw some of these on YouTube back around 2012 or so but they may have since been pulled for whatever reason, perhaps some of them are on TORNADO VIDEO CLASSICS? Perhaps someone at NOAA might know where to start looking, or that college in Texas that has lots of Fujita's damage surveys and aerials?
