In real time, tornadoes are incredibly difficult to pin down at the street or building level, let alone which side of a town was hit. Our team of meteorologists have been working toward this tornado capability for almost a decade. Previously, it typically took days to gather information about what was or was not hit; now it’s mere hours.”
