Drone footage of Canton TX tornado is pretty incredible....

 

I would love to get footage like this. I am guessing the drone can handle winds far above manufacturer's specs. He is lucky it didn't get pulled into an inflow jet.

Nice videos of the Canton tornado. So it didn't munch those power lines with a big power flash? Probably for the best.

SPC did the right thing. Went severe watch west of DFW. Waited for a solid signal before going tornado watch DFW. It was going to be a mesoscale decision right over a major city. Warnings got out in plenty of time. DFW friends told me they knew it was going to hit the fan.

Once again the warning system worked very well in a major metro.

I just counted the reports from every single day. I suppose the most important value, is the number of confirmed tornadoes. My best resource here is Wikipedia, which says 294.

Ok, thanks for the clarification.

Through 5/29, preliminary tornado count for this May is roughly
600.  When all is said in done in additional storm surveys and final
actual tornado count, removing duplicates, odds are we are easily
going to see a top 5 month.  Here are the months w/ 300 or more
tornadoes in the U.S.:
 
     April 2011    758           June 1990    329
     May   2003    543           May  1982    329
     May   2004    509           May  2011    326
     May   2008    462           June 2010    324
     June  1992    399           June 2005    316
     May   1995    391           June 1993    313
     May   2015    381           May  1999    311
     June  1998    376           May  1998    310
     May   1991    335           May  2010    304

Interesting June 1993 comes up. I remember lots of severe near KC before going flood. Similarities this year exist. Perhaps late-season June-ing will go well.

Around the 1:16 mark he seems to get into a little trouble when he turns to reposition and the drone drops and you can catch a glimpse of some leaves or small branches falling past at 1:20ish so

Mentioned this in the other forum, but the Dayton tornado was just upgraded to an EF4. That means we’ve had two violent tornadoes during this prolonged outbreak sequence. Matches with the radar data we saw in real time.

Interesting that the second lowest number of tornadoes during this outbreak was the high risk day on the 20th.
