A Multiple Video Perspective of the 26 June, 2018 EF3 Eureka, Kansas Tornado

On June 26th, 2018, an EF3 tornado moved through the town of Eureka, Kansas. Unfortunately, this was the second time in three years, that a tornado had hit this town. This tornado virtually developed over the center of town so tornado warning lead time was minimal. As the tornado developed, there were several video perspectives that showed the development of this tornado. With the cooperation of Greenwood County Emergency Management, the National Weather Service in Wichita gained access to this video footage, including spotter videos, sheriffs’ cams, and the Eureka Courthouse security camera, as the tornado evolved. This presentation will show a chronological view (time-matched), of the different videos as the tornado evolved and how it related to tornadogenesis.
