Seven destructive tornadoes struck Oklahoma on May 24, 2011. The tornadoes were well forecast by the National Weather Service (NWS), and NSSL was in position to capture the storms in several ways.
NSSL videographer James Murnan was just awarded a 2011 INDUS Excellence Award. Murnan was one of five recipients in the entire company of 500 employees. INDUS holds the federal Information Technology contract at NSSL.
The NSSL/CIMMS Severe Hazards Analysis and Verification Experiment (SHAVE) are collecting hail, wind damage and flash flooding reports through phone surveys from now through mid-August.
