This morning, as the death toll rises in Greensburg, KS; it should remind us how blessed we are to not have lost lives in Maramaduke.
Below are some radar images I grabbed from KAKE last night. The first image is a "classic" hook heading for Greensburg. The second image is the wind data from the storm. Remember, green colors are winds going toward from the radar site and red is wind going away from the radar site. Jay Prater had the area of rotation circled. The third image is when the tornado was ripping through the torn of Greensburg. *** I had to edit the away/toward comment*** The brain was not in gear! Thanks John
Kansas has another long day ahead of them. The SPC has issued a "High Risk" for the Kansas area and tornado watches have already been issued. For LIVE streaming coverage of the severe weather, click here to go KSN's coverage. Hopefully KAKE will start streaming too. The Chief there, Jay Prater, is a friend of mine from weather conferences AND one of Craig Rickert's long-time best friends. I'd love to watch his coverage, but they were not streaming last night and I doubt they will tonight. If they, do... I'll post the link.
Have a great day,
