Fog Bank, May 27, 2013

The first pick is from the NASA image of the day on May 22 with a MODIS satellite image of the storm that caused the tornado in Moore, OK

Brad Panovich posted a link to a NASA SPoRT blogpost about lightning activity just before the Oklahoma tornados.
I haven't found out yet what the SPoRT acronym means.

I've got the commentary from the NWS office in La Crosse, Wisconsin, about the May 19 storms

From GoogleEarthPics, FIre Rainbows over Kansas

Tornado Titans posted a very nice photo of a supercell on the Oklahoma/Kansas border

The NY Times had an article about the Oklahoma tornados

I found an interactive map that shows before & after aerial pictures of Moore, OK.  You can move the point of view, and find the edges of the tornado's path.
