Birds, Suction Vortices, and El Reno

Here's an article I read the other day about birds possibly getting out of the way of advancing tornadic storms. From the article:
"US scientists say tracking data shows that five golden-winged warblers "evacuated" their nesting site one day before the April 2014 tornado outbreak."
Along those lines, here is a video that shows suction vortices inside of a larger tornado. It's pretty amazing to see it close up.

And finally, here is an excellent breakdown of the unprecedented, record-breaking El Reno tornado from 2013.

More storm and writing news coming soon...
