Yesterday’s Tornadoes in Kentucky and Indiana…

March 1st, 2011

Concerning the deadly tornadoes and severe storms that formed/touched-down yesterday in Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee, for whatever such might have been worth, unfortunately I am not in the west where I could even hope to monitor my tornado/severe weather prediction theories for the American Heartland.


At least 2 tornadoes touch down in Kentucky

Weather agency reports 3 tornadoes in Indiana

Tornado watch in effect

Worthy of note for historic purposes:
Tri-State Tornado

“The Tri-State Tornado of Wednesday, March 18, 1925, was the deadliest tornado in U.S. history. With 695 confirmed fatalities, the tornado killed more than twice as many as the second deadliest, the 1840 Great Natchez Tornado. The continuous ≥219 mile (≥352 km) track left by the tornado was the longest ever recorded in the world: the tornado crossed from southeastern Missouri, through Southern Illinois, then into southwestern Indiana. While not officially rated by NOAA, it is recognized by many as an F5 tornado, the maximal damage rating issued on the Fujita scale”
