New Research On The 1925 Tri-State Tornado-Longest Track on Record

Posted by Dan Satterfield

Good piece here from KOTV Meteorologist Michael Grogan about the research into the Tri-State tornado of 1925. I grew up in Tulsa, and when I was young there were many people still alive who witnessed this tornado. It holds the record for the longest track of one tornado on record. I’ve always suspected that it was probably actually several tornadoes from one super-cell, but hopefully the research from NOAA Meteorologist Steve Piltz will answer some long-standing questions.

The tornado killed 696 people that day and was (and still is) the deadliest tornado in U.S. history.
