Generous gift promotes pediatric faculty research synapse: By Anne McMillin, APR Department of Pediatrics A long-standing relationship between the University of Nevada School of Medicine and a private medical group further solidified when the school received a generous gift from the Children's Heart Center Nevada to support statewide pediatric faculty research.
Play media This animation of satellite images from April 26 through the morning of April 28 shows the development of the weather system which spawned the tornadoes. The outbreak was caused by a vigorous upper-level trough that moved into the Southern Plains states on April An extratropical cyclone developed ahead of this upper-level trough between northeastern Oklahoma and western Missouriwhich moved northeast.
The storm mode on April 26 was predicted to include mostly discrete supercells during both the afternoon and the early evening, shifting over to a mesoscale convective complexwith more of a threat of damaging winds and hail during the nighttime hours.
This included 41 tornado watches — 10 of which were Particularly dangerous situation PDS watches, and 15 severe 2011 spring research watches. An intense supercell thunderstorm tracked near the Little Rock area and a tornado emergency was declared for the city of Vilonia.
A large EF2 wedge tornado struck the town, subsequently causing severe damage and killing four people. April 26[ edit ] A high risk of severe weather was issued for April 26 for portions of Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas along and near the Interstate 30 corridor as conditions became even more favorable for extreme weather.
One of the surface lows tracked northeast along the Mississippi River into Wisconsin as it 2011 spring research. Tornado watches were issued for the Lower Great Lakes during the afternoon hours as supercell thunderstorms developed along the warm front lifting north across central Michigan.
Two tornadoes touched down in Michigan and caused damage to farm structures. Further east, severe thunderstorms caused scattered wind damage and large hail across Pennsylvania and New York.
Two-inch-diameter hail was reported in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania. Another tornado — this one being in Gilbertsville — caused significant damage to a school's athletic field. As the low formed across Texas and deepened while moving east, a tightening pressure gradient force further strengthened the low-level jet, therefore creating a broad warm sector across the southeastern states.
This also generated stronger wind shear, providing better organization for the supercell storms as a result. Numerous tornadoes touched down across several states, including Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas.
Most of those tornadoes were weak, but a few of them caused considerable damage. A long-tracked wedge tornado caused EF2 damage in rural portions of Texas and Louisiana.
April 27[ edit ] Significant severe weather was ongoing early on April 27 and continued for the entire day virtually unbroken. Later that morning, the SPC even increased the probability for tornadoes to 45 percent along a corridor from Meridian, Mississippito Huntsville, Alabamaan extremely rare issuance exceeding the high risk standards.
Conditions became increasingly favorable for tornadoes during such an extreme tornado outbreak. An upper-level disturbance that had moved across the frontal boundary the previous evening sparked an area of thunderstorms that morphed into a squall line.
This line of severe thunderstorms would produce tornado activity from the evening on April 26 into the late morning of April Early in the morning the squall line, packing straight-line winds and numerous embedded tornadoes, moved through Louisiana and Mississippi before proceeding to affect North and Central Alabama and parts of Middle and East Tennessee.
The line strengthened as it moved through Alabamapartially due to a high amount of low-level moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and increasing wind shear. A majority of the tornadoes embedded in this initial squall line were weak, though several were strong and as such caused significant damage. Another EF3 resulted in heavy damage in downtown Cordova, Alabamawhich was struck by a deadly EF4 tornado later that afternoon.
One embedded cell that began in Cullman County, Alabama produced a long-tracked EF2 that struck the town of Hancevillekilling one person. The initial storms caused widespread power and telephone line outages across Alabama and Tennessee.
This line of storms also caused some NOAA weather radio transmitter sites to stop functioning for the remainder of the outbreak. Because of this, many people were without power and had no warning of any approaching tornadoes later that day.
However, this time several discrete supercells developed along and in front of the line, spawning seven weak tornadoes across MorganLimestoneand Madison Counties in northern Alabama around noon that day. The most intense supercells of the outbreak developed shortly after noon in Mississippi and began tracking eastward.UPDATE Vol.
