    Anyone know how to get Google Earth KML or KMZ exports of estimated tornado tracks from past events? They're easy to overlay onto embedded Google maps and I'd like to add them to chase maps like I have with LSRs. An example here: http://www.stormdig.com/storm-pictures/2016/208-may-7-2016

    I know how to pull down CSV files for tracks but I'd rather not whip up a Python conversion script if I don't have to o_O

    On a related note...those LSR KML files don't seem to be available for events prior to 2008.
