  1. I live in central Florida and I remember walking 2 miles home when hurricane Michael made it to us. Other than my phone getting destroyed in the rain it wasn't much from what I remember

  2. Supercells are ridiculous. The winds are crazy, there is usually lightning, and the hale must have been of a bigger size, or a huge amount. Some cars end up looking dimpled like golf balls after some hailstorms. I have seen golf ball sized hail. I live in Austin, TX. That town is maybe 150 miles away at the most. It qualifies as central Texas. Amarillo is north Texas, to us in Texas. When the eye of a hurricane passes over, the horrid weather stops for a while. The back side of the eye of the hurricane is often worse than the initial front of the hurricane. The planes that fly into the hurricanes, or one of them is the Lockheed WC-130J aircraft.

  3. I live less than 2 hours away from the tornado in Kentucky recently, and I live literally less than half a mile from Kentucky. I was up all night, watching the news, just waiting for the tornado to hit its 5th state. We got lucky here this time around, but my heart goes out to those affected by it.

  4. In 1978 there was an all day rain storm after a blizzard that caused flooding all up and down route 91. After a late night of playing table tennis, I was turning off 91 into Northfield, MA Rt.10 where there was a dip in the turn-off and 2 feet of water. It cracked my distributer cap and stalled my car in front of a bank at about 2:00 AM. I got help to start the car in the freezing rain but could only get the car to the NH border before it stalled for good. My dad came and got me and when I got the tow truck to help me get it the next morning we were stopped by state troopers because the bank I had stalled in front of was robbed that morning. Lucky they didn't care that the tow truck dragged my 72 Chevy Nova across the state line.

  5. Cyclones can only form under certain conditions and due to wind and ocean currents, that condition is always around the equator and then when the storm formation hits land to the west of the ocean. Oceanic and air currents over the ocean go clockwise for the northern hemisphere and counter clockwise (anti-clockwise, with the Arctic being 12 o'clock for the northern hemisphere and the equator being 12 for the southern and then the equator is 6 for the north and Antarctica is 6 for the south. Africa and Western Europe is 3 o'clock for the Atlantic Ocean, the North and South American continental eastern coasts would be the 6 o'clock. Their western coast line is the Pacific's 3 o'clock and then Asia's eastern coast and seas all make up the 6 o'clock for that ocean.

    The reason I explained all of that is because cyclones form from warmer water near the equator, but they follow the flow of warmer water and the wind which always moves them westward across the equator. That's why Western Europe and Western Africa as well as the Western coasts of the Americas have never experienced hurricanes/typhoons because all they get is cold water being dragged around from either the Arctic or Antarctica.

    That avalanche happened in a valley. They were on the top of a ridge on the other side, so the snow basically ran up and washed over them similar to waves in a lake. The reason it looked like that is because it was dry powder snow, not the wet slushy stuff you're probably used to in England. When you get really fine and dry powder, you can get snow to "waft" up and billow like that. But that's still a tremendous amount of snow that could have ended them if they weren't on that higher ground.

  6. Growing up in Colorado hail was a very common occurrence. Very rare to see a car without hail damage. Few years ago there was a hail storm near Golden, Co that went straight through people's windshields and caused the local Mall's roof so much damage that it flooded and was shut for almost a year. I've seen hail in Colorado that looks like a few inches of snow there is so much of it people have to shovel it.

  7. Thurston I’m so glad this is how you found out about the Hurricane Hunters.

    If you want to blow your mind more check out their flight into Hurricane Hugo in 1989.

    Also afaik El Reno in 2013 is still the largest tornado on record. I don’t think that’s been beaten yet.

  8. I wasn't expecting something I'd been in to be on here :D, I was at my house when that dust storm came in, we get several a year but that is the darkest one I've seen, when it hit and got dark I was very glad to have just gotten home from work lol

  9. Unrelated but I wanted to make sure you had found out that tornadoes don’t have eyes like hurricanes. I heard you ask if someone was in the center of a tornado again on a recent video. There is no calm place in a ?

  10. You should try to find some hail videos. I’m in Oklahoma in tornado alley. Hail is rated by size..marble, golf ball, baseball, softball & so on. Hail can do a lot of damage & you definitely don’t want to get hit by it ?

  11. Check out rthe videos from Hurricane Michael. We were there less than a week before and 8 months later. It was still unrecognizable. Even last summer you could still see damage. It was massive.

  12. I was shocked to experience my first earthquake because it was in Texas. But I've seen all of that other stuff except for the avalanche thing which blew my mind.

  13. I really, really think you'd like the very emotional, professional documentary "In an Instant" on the tornado in Moore, OK that hit the school. It puts all these weather events into such perspective. As a storm lover (and mediocre chaser years ago), I keep the heart of it close to me at all times. Best doc I've ever seen done post-storm. (It's here on YT but if I link it the comment goes to spam.)
