Hello! VORTEX2 has been extremely busy lately, with chases occurring every day. We have been fortunate to have at least had opportunities every day…and several of the storms have been tornadic. The LSC/NCAR Photogrammetry team was able to collect data on one supercell that produced two tornadoes near Deer Trail, Colorado on June 10th. See below for some pictures of the tornado! We also surveyed the damage, and found one tree that had one large and several small branches broken off. We believe this was cause by the tornado, but will have to verify this using the radar data.
We are very excited to have another case under our belts, and hope for more before the end of the project. There are only 4 days left!!!
