Texas Tornadoes From Space

This is an awe-inspiring satellite image of the tornadic supercell (center) that tore through Cleburne and Granbury, Texas, day before yesterday killing six people, injuring 50 people badly enough to go to the hospital and picking up at least one wood-framed home and dumping it 900 feet away. It also produced destructive hail the size of grapefruit as seen on this blog HERE. Note the overshooting tops of not only the supercell in question but also some of the nearby supercells some of which were also tornadic. A total of 16 tornadoes were generated by this family of storms. Image courtesy of NOAA.
