13 Years Ago….

Here in Oklahoma, it’s become a way of living. Living with tornadoes. And to this date, the tornado that struck Moore on May 3rd, 1999 still stands as the strongest tornado recorded.

Of course, this topic is debatable. The device that recorded the tornado was a mobile doppler. Not every tornado has a mobile doppler right next to it tracking it’s every move and there no telling how strong the winds are in tornadoes that sweep across open land, miles away from any sort of mobile radar.

So, yes, the tornado still holds the title of strongest tornado on record, though it’s not for certain.

Tornado in between I-44 and I-35 in Cleveland County.

Here is the velocity image of the tornado after just crossing over I-35 in Moore.
