Meteorogical HistoryEdit

The outbreak began on august 4th, 2015 at 3:43 PM. At that time, an F1 caused damage to a college, killing 2. Then, an F2 devastated a farm and destroyed part of a trailer park. Around 4:00, an F4 touched down and obliterated a neibourhood. A triplet of waterspouts, like the ones seen in Twister, became an F2 waternado that flooded the already damaged trailer park soon after they merged. And then came the "Supernado." After the Supernado annihalated downtown Dallas, an F1 touched down. It debarked several hundred trees and uprooted 7. More tornadoes occured, but there were WAY too many.

The SupernadoEdit

An F3 touches down about 15 miles SSW of Dallas. As it strengthens, it devastates Cockrell Hill as an F4, and moves closer to downtown Dallas. It obliterates hundreds of houses and lives as an F5, and soon it's a 1.5 mile wide F6. Its winds are felt as an F2 in downtown dallas, and then it strikes. The F7 tornado utterly obliterates downtown Dallas, and kills thousands. It is now the deadliest tornado ever in recorded history. It soon descends on Lakewood as an F6, and soon crosses the Texas-oklahoma border. Another F3 touches down near the mile-wide monster, but it gets absorbed, making the Supernado an F7 again. It obliterates downdowntown Oklahoma city as an F4, and after leaving a huge swath of destruction, finally dissipates. At peak intensity, it had an estimated pressure of 500 mb and 450 mph winds. It claims 7,492 lives in downtown dallas, 4,823 in downdowntown oklahoma city and 5,429 elsewhere.

Violent TornadoesEdit

A total of 16 violent tornadoes (F4+) touched down, and the Fort Worth F6, Houston F6 and the Dallas F7 were "Catastrophic" tornadoes. Each caused at least 1000 deaths, had winds over 330 mph and had pressures lower than 700 mb. All for all, the F6s and the F7 caused 84% of the  deaths associated with the outbreak.
