It's been one wild weather season here in the Tri-State with every imaginable scenario possible, except for the strongest type of tornado, an EF-5. Leigh Orf, a scientist with Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies at the University of Wisconsin at Madison re-created an EF-5 tornado that touched down during an outbreak in Oklahoma in 2011. This is amazing.

The work Orf and others are doing are helping meteorologists take a closer look, closer than ever before at what conditions cause such destructive storms. The "El Reno" tornado outbreak in May 2011 resulted in 11 deaths and 293 injuries.
