    Re: Target area today..... I've noticed several tornado reports today from NOAA aircraft as follows: REISSUANCE OF ORIGINAL LSR - TORNADO OBSERVED BY NOAA AIRCRAFT PROJECT VORTEX 1 MILE NORTH OF CALHOUN.

    Does anyone know if there is a new project VORTEX this year?

    Thanks.

    Warren, Vortex-SE is in full force. A couple of weeks ago, I saw the same P-3 in Alabama flying out ahead of the Russellville, AL storm...hurricane hunter aircraft.

    That’s an interesting flight path they took on Friday once they arrived at the line of storms and started criss crossing them.

    Here’s the homepage for their operations: https://www.nssl.noaa.gov/projects/vortexse/
