VIPIR Wild June

June has been a wild weather month! This first promo was shot entirely with a home video camera during actual storms and live broadcasts that hit Friday, June 6th. The second spot shows the unique attributes of VIPIR when detecting tornadoes. In this particular example from Monday, June 9th, VIPIR data indicated wind rotation had reached the ground NE of Van Wert, OH over a minute before a tornado warning was issued.

To Curtis Smith, Thank You for the updates yesterday, but when you have a tornado warning, are the sirens suppose to go off, because I live in southern DeKalb county, and whenever we get a tornado warning, the sirens go off, but they didn't yesterday

Actually, the premise of Van Wert Guy is incorrect. A warning is not anyway related to amount of assessed damage determined long after a tornado. Most people want to know if a funnel cloud is present near them regardless.

Except the "warning" you referred too was NOT a tornado. No damage. That's the irresponsibility of INC!
