Micro-bursts and tornadoes
damage survey

Speaker Notes:

The image on this slide is from a damage survey shown by Forbes and Wakimoto in an article published in Monthly Weather Review in 1983. One of the main points of this slide is that many of the tornadoes on this day appeared to develop in close proximity to micro- bursts, indicating that strong horizontal wind shears associated with the micro-bursts may have played a role in tornadogenesis.
