2. Between this and the new storm surge hurricane model

TWC is scary as hell and very effective. I can't imagine what they will come up with in the future.

18. That is terrifying.

I can deal w/ hurricanes because at least you have some warning, but tornadoes freak me out. I feel so sorry for people who have been through these disasters. It must be horrifying beyond belief.

7. Back in the day when I was a video producer we used World Builder for CGI like that.

And then waited for days while a rack of servers (& assorted employee computers, using a tender manager) rendered it.

The whole process is a LOT faster today.

This is really frightening. I don't know why so many people choose to ignore the science.

9. No such thing as global warming.....

But Miami, Miami beach and Ft Lauderdale are routinely flooding. Anything other than a normal tide and the water rises... Where is the water coming from? uhhhhh I don't know, but not global warming...

10. Do the same demo for Trump Tower, NYC & Mar A Shithole, Florida

showing about 6 feet of water in the Tower and Shithole lobbies, with sound-over stating

"These WERE the prime Trump properties that have been swallowed up by climate change forever TARNISHING The Donald's legacy".

Maybe that would change his attitude.

If that doesn't work, someone can say they overheard Obama say "It's not worth fighting climate change if it saves Trump's properties, let them go under"

11. Amazing video's

Thanks for posting those.

When I was in high school, (1974) we were in the giant swath of multiple tornado's that ripped though KY. southern IN, and other areas of the midwest and south. My little brother and I were coming home on the school bus. The driver had to keep taking right angle turns to outrun one tornado come at us across the cornfields. Scary as hell. Everybody without power for days. Major destruction, including hail damage from baseball sized. (my dad kept one in our freezer for years).
Astounding occurrences. You could see pieces of straw driven through telephone poles. One of the other school buses was not so lucky, and ended up hanging in pieces from treetops. One kid was killed, and a friend of mine had her jeans completely untorn, but a piece of metal went up her pants leg and she ended up with 70+ stitches.
For many years in Louisville, you could see the paths the tornado's took through the big parks (Cherokee, Iroquois). Huge paths through the wooded areas that were stripped bare.

Everyone who was alive at the time can recall that week vividly. The tornado's kept popping up for a couple days.

Wikipedia says of that time:

The 1974 Super Outbreak was the second-largest tornado outbreak on record for a single 24-hour period (as of 2019), just behind the 2011 Super Outbreak. It was also the most violent tornado outbreak ever recorded (as of 2019), with 30 F4/F5 tornadoes confirmed. From April 3 to 4, 1974, there were 148 tornadoes confirmed in 13 U.S. states and the Canadian province of Ontario.[nb 1] In the United States, tornadoes struck Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and New York. The outbreak caused roughly $843 million USD (~equivalent to $4.58 billion in 2019) with more than $600 million (~equivalent to $3.3 billion in 2019) in damage occurring in the United States. The outbreak extensively damaged approximately 900 sq mi (2,331 km2) along a total combined path length of 2,600 mi (4,184 km).[1][2] At one point, as many as 15 separate tornadoes were on the ground simultaneously
