In Canada, even F5 tornadoes are eh.
« on: August 02, 2019, 06:03:54 PM »
Some amazingly laid-back footage of a very laid-back F5 tornado, the first (and maybe only to date) F5 rated storm in Canada, in Manitoba 2007.

The resolution is dire (240), but the detail is very good, through a lot of different stages, and the tornado just kinda chills in a field a few miles away going nowhere for a while. Arguably heading toward the guy phone-filming it, but y'know, maybe not.



"Hey, you want a to take a picture in front of it?" "Eh, sure!"

Because when Rommel is scared of you, an F5 tornado is just a nifty piece of scenery. What's it going to do? Feh!

Jason-Did you happen to see this footage taken from a drone of a tornado in Oklahoma?

I've either seen that before or something very much like it. Not for a while, though!

The high-def downward tracking to it, is excellent experimental evidence in favor of the current emerging theory that even small tornadoes (like this one) are composed of a bunch of even-smaller vortexes congregating together. (This can be seen briefly, too, in the zooms of the prior video, even at low definition.)

Lee Orf is a leading researcher on this theory, using the "Dark Waters" supercomputer modeling system. This is the most recent full-length lecture and demonstration of his theories. (About an hour.)
