Videos from the April 13, April 14 and April 15, 2012 Tornado Outbreak Sequence
A strong upper-level trough began to pivot its way through the western U.S. on Friday, April 13, 2012 with several front-running disturbances out ahead of it. This sparked a number of tornadoes that were reported in Oklahoma, including quite close to Oklahoma City.
The main tornado outbreak is now underway today, April 14, with additional activity expected through tomorrow. Today’s high risk tornado threat encompasses the cities of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Wichita, Kansas; Topeka, Kansas; Lincoln, Nebraska; and Omaha, Nebraska.
Notes: Tornadoes are not necessarily in order of occurrence. There are many videos, so it may take awhile to load the page. This post will be updated as additional videos surface…
