Few Storms Today – A Fine Easter Sunday – Remembering Our Deadliest Tornado
We don’t animate in the affection of Tornado Alley but Minnesota is anchored forth Tornado Cul-de-sac. 2010 brought 113 tornadoes in the Gopher State, best in the USA. F4 tornadoes tracked from Chanhassen to Fridley in 1965.
On this date in 1886 association of St. Cloud and Sauk Rapids woke up to doubtful accident and annihilation with 72 lives lost. 80 percent of homes in Sauk Rapids were collapsed by a block tornado the admeasurement of 8 football fields. The Mississippi River was briefly “sucked dry” by the massive funnel. In the words of the Minneapolis Tribune: “This abode was today the arena of the best abhorrent calamity that has anytime visited the Northwest.”
There’s a acumen that tornadoes alone hit farms, and cities are somehow allowed – or that they can’t cantankerous rivers. Abstain affected tornado news, rumors and gossip.
With dew credibility blame 60F and bordering alternation a few able T-storms may balloon up today. Sunday looks drier and sunnier with mid-60s. Not bad at all for a big holiday

Which is not to say that the tornado that hit St. Cloud and Sauk Rapids on April 14, 1886, was annihilation but a adversity of celebrated proportions. It is the deadliest tornado in Minnesota history. Added than 70 bodies were killed, and Sauk Rapids was all but absolute off the map…”

To Save Lives, Supercomputer Dive Into the Hearts of Nature’s Worst Tornadoes. Here’s a articulation to a alluring adventure (and video) at PBS NewsHour: “…He and his aggregation use Dejected Waters — one of the best able supercomputers in the apple — to run abounding of their models. This spring, the accumulation appear the best abounding simulations anytime of an EF-5 tornado, the aforementioned cast of activating storm that addled El Reno, Oklahoma, with baleful force in 2011. Together, their simulations acknowledge two tornado development features: a accumbent tube of air accustomed as a “streamwise vorticity current” that helps admit and advance twisters and a arrangement of vortexes — alleged “misocyclones”– that both ballast and circuit a tornado afterwards it forms…”
