Discovery - Video
Genesis and evolution of a rain-wrapped tornado observed VORTEX2 teams in southeastern Wyoming.

Genesis and evolution of a rain-wrapped tornado observed west of La Grange, Wyoming. Tornado initially touched-down 11 km west of the camera, but ultimately advanced within 2 km that location. Damage surveys indicate a path length of 12 km and peak intensity rating of EF2. This storm was the subject of coordinated observations by multiple teams in conjunction with the NSF-supported VORTEX2 project on the afternoon of 5 June 2009.
