    Even though DMX basically set the criteria for a tornado emergency....they have yet to issue one. Hopefully no lives are lost tonight. The cells firing right now are ripe for large and violent tornados.


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    Wow, I'm no weather expert but it looked like a good size hook echo on the radar. Hopefully everyone is able to stay safe.

    Re: TORNADO EMERGENCY CHEROKEE, IOWA

    Storm report from Sioux Falls has that law enforcement reported the tornado crossing Highway 59 (N/S road into town) 1 mile south of Cherokee. No other info yet. Hopefully implies it missed as much as possible.

    Radar rotation now well NE of town.

    Re: TORNADO EMERGENCY CHEROKEE, IOWA

    So are you thinking that this line of storms will be the only severe one for the night, or should we expect more to fire up to the west later again?

    Re: TORNADO EMERGENCY CHEROKEE, IOWA

    I'm from Cherokee. All my family still lives there. I just got off the phone with my parents, sounds like the storm moved passed the south side of Cherokee and the damage wasn't nearly as bad as predicted.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    That western line should be it for severe weather.

    They moved all the students into the locker rooms about a half hour ago to seek shelter.

    Getting some rain and lightning, but the possible tornado is farther SE in Clay County over to Buena Vista county. Tornado Warning for Clay doesn't actually include Spencer.

    Re: TORNADO EMERGENCY CHEROKEE, IOWA

    Is Des Moines/Ankeny suppose to get hit, or are they going to die off before they get here?

    I don't think severe weather will be an issue here. Too far away from the low/triple point, and not far enough south to get the right forcing/convergence along the front.

    Essentially lined up at a bad angle to get maximum forcing with the cold front.
