Welcome MessageWelcome to Storm Crave!
Storm Crave is a multimedia weather group that currently is in its growth stage. We can't do it alone, we need your help and your photos! We have a current community project underway of collecting weather photos of all types, in order to create a large photo album for the purpose of science, education, and safety. We would love to have your photos in our album, and photos of all quality are welcome. All credit and copyright will go to the photo author, and Storm Crave does not monetize or make money off of the photo gallery. We accept photos of anything mildly related to weather, this includes: clouds, storms, storm features, exotic clouds, lightning, sunsets, etc... Get started by submitting your photos HERE, or by viewing photos HERE. We thank you for your interest in Storm Crave and hope you find enjoyment in this community.
5/21/19High risk day 5/20/19 Review.
The SPC issued a "high risk" on 5/20 for parts of Texas, and Oklahoma. This was the first high risk issued since May of 2017, along with that this was the first 45% significant tornado risk since 2012.
Although severe weather was certainly a concern, another large concern was flooding. The SPC also issued a high risk for flash flooding on 5/21. Some areas in northern Oklahoma received close to 6 inches of rain in a timeframe of just 24 hours.
A total of 26 tornadoes were reported from this system (1 on 5/21, 25 on 5/20). The extent of damage and rating is not yet known until the surveys are complete.
The system that caused this severe weather will continue the track north east. This has caused the SPC to issue a enhanced risk for Arkansas through Missouri up through parts of Illinois. Flooding and severe weather risks will continue as this system moves.
