May 29, 2013: Nebraska's "Tornado Drought" Ends


The following map shows the storm reports submitted to the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, OK.

There were a total of 23 tornadoes reported to the SPC for May 29, 2013.  The term "filtered" means they have attempted to filter out any potential duplicate reports.  Duplicate reports occur when the same tornado is seen by multiple observers.  For example an observer might report seeing a tornado and they are 4 miles west of the tornado and another observer sees the same tornado but they are 5 miles east of the tornado.  The 9 mile distance at first might make it seem like they saw two different tornadoes , yet in fact it was the same tornado.  At the end of the year all of the tornado reports are analyzed to make sure that as best as possible any and all duplicate reports are eliminated.

The total of 16 tornadoes in Nebraska may ultimately be lowered by a few but it still remains as the most active day for tornadoes in Nebraska in over a year.

Here are some photos of the York, Nebraska May 29, 2013 tornado:
