Some of the photos from around McConnell AFB are eerily reminiscent of Moore Medical Center, with parts of vehicles scattered all around and a thick coat of mud splattered over absolutely everything. One photo that I wish I could find again showed a new Humvee all torn up and basically folded in half, which was pretty striking.A lot of those images remind me of Moore ‘13, I think those two tornadoes reached a similar intensity and are pretty comparable. As for Andover I’m leaning towards it was probably the strongest tornado during that outbreak, some of the feats of damage it accomplished were some of the most impressive I’ve seen. However with Red Rock traversing such rural areas and it’s full potential being unknown it makes you wonder what would’ve happened if the roles were reversed.
I'm not sure that asphalt scouring is always as impressive as it sounds. Especially in rural areas, lots of roads aren't in great shape and often have a pretty thin top layer of asphalt, which probably wouldn't take a huge amount of force to peel up. Still potentially suggestive of a strong/violent tornado, but not necessarily anything super high-end.The giant oil rig and asphalt scouring from Red Rock lead me to believe it was probably the most violent of the outbreak, or its intensity was on par with Andover's. I don't think pavement/asphalt scouring happened with Andover, or at least I haven't been able to find pics of it. Red Rock's path length and duration is about the same as El Reno's as well.
More or less. The area around Towanda was a little more built up but it had already started weakening by that point.Never seen color photos of the oil spill before, nice find! Was the rest of its path pretty much open plains country once it exited Andover?
