-- so we've seen a lot of this -- these twisters forming and seconds later disappearing.
Then forming again maybe repression and -- can help us understand.
What's going on here.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Multiple board to see tornado so within the rotation of the tornado you get a little suction -- c.s that will rotate around in it.
And very often in a tornado do you see it -- it'll drop that funnel cloud will meet the grounder to form a tornado.
And then it'll lift up again in May be down the road a few miles away there's a hundred couple hundred yards away it'll -- again.
So this is all very very common to the great part of what we've seen here.
Is it appears that there wasn't any large tornado on the ground when it got in toward Oklahoma City.
At that point -- lifted and -- this storm became very very erratic.
And fairly and for lack of better were disorganized -- were numerous tornadoes and a ton of rain in it so the largest tornado.
It's -- bad.
Happened west of the city in the town of -- Reno and that's were received.
The majority of the damage take a look at the weather maps -- show -- something child try to explain what this is this is the visible satellite image of this is.
Exactly what the satellite sees when it's looking down at the years.
And this is around 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon all this -- here is just some low level clouds here across the area nothing big going on.
There's a cap in the atmosphere so we know that warm air rises.
As long as -- air but it is colder but there was an area above it that is warmer so all of that -- Is rising and it's hitting that warmer air and it's like a -- we -- the captain meteorologist but is it it's like a lid.
Think about that -- heating up and heating up and heating up.
And then eventually.
That lid pops off and the entire thing explodes -- about 525 yesterday right here around Oklahoma City.
Nothing going on take a look at what happens immediately within about twenty to thirty minutes.
This explodes right here just to the west of Oklahoma City -- that's around that El Reno area had a lot of people yesterday on Twitter saying to me.
We don't everything -- we aren't seeing anything happen usually you see a little bit more development.
This happened so quickly and exploded and I think that's in many cases why there were so many people on the road at that time that's.
Thanks so much for that explanation --
