Thanks Mike!! YOU are da man! :) I greatly appreciate you being the "official" gatekeeper of statistics for this site.

Tom in Fort Worth
 
Can someone please hit me over the head on here when there is a rating on the Wynne, AR tornado? :p Mike?

I'm also interested in seeing a track map if and when surveying is completed and someone puts it online.

Cheers,

Karen.
 
I just wanted to take a second to say 'Thanks Mike' for all the stats and links you are always providing. Sometimes this saves us all a lot of time.
 
PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT OF THE CROSS COUNTY (ARKANSAS) TORNADO:

A TEAM FROM NWS LITTLE ROCK SURVEYED DAMAGE FROM A TORNADIC
THUNDERSTORM THAT BEGAN 4 MILES SOUTHEAST OF MORTON OR ABOUT A MILE
NORTH OF THE PENROSE COMMUNITY IN WOODRUFF COUNTY AND ENDED 9 MILES
SOUTHWEST OF PARKIN IN CROSS COUNTY. THE TORNADO REMAINED IN WOODRUFF
COUNTY FOR LESS THAN HALF A MILE AND THEN MOVED INTO CROSS COUNTY.
THIS TORNADO WENT ON TO STRIKE THE FITZGERALD CROSSING COMMUNITY
SOUTH OF WYNNE AND VILLAGE CREEK STATE PARK. A NUMBER OF HOUSES WERE
DESTROYED OR DAMAGED ALONG WITH MOBILE HOMES...FARM SHOPS...AND
GRAIN SILOS. HUNDREDS OF TREES AND POWER LINES WERE DOWNED.
SEVERAL PARKED EIGHTEEN WHEELERS AND CARS WERE OVERTURNED. A
PRELIMINARY RATING OF F3 WAS GIVEN TO THE TORNADO WITH ESTIMATED
WINDS OF 200 MPH. THERE WERE 5 INJURIES IN CROSS COUNTY. THANKS TO
LITTLE ROCK FOR THEIR HELP. THERE WILL BE MORE UPDATES TO COME ON
THIS STORM IN THE FUTURE.

Karen...here is the storm report for that "nice" tornado you and Jason witnessed/chased.
 
The final assessment from Memphis NWSFO has been completed:

<div class='quotetop'>QUOTE("MEG")</div>
...FINAL ASSESSMENTS OF THE TORNADO DAMAGE FROM THE MAJOR TORNADO
OUTBREAK ACROSS THE MIDSOUTH FROM THE AFTERNOON OF APRIL 2 2006 TO
THE OVERNIGHT HOURS OF APRIL 3 2006...
[/b]

CLICK HERE to read the final damage assessment from the tornado across the MEG CWA on 4/2.

For those who haven't read it, the Marmaduke/Caruthersville has received a final rating of strong F3. I'm a little surprised by this, since I figured the damage that I saw online and TV looked to be F4. Obviously, there's a LOT more to a damage assessment than looking at some pics and video, so I certainly am not doubting MEG. I never really saw anything I'd consider to be near F5, but my first guess based on damage seen was F4.

Were any ST members on the damage assessment team that looked at this tornado? I think we have a couple of folks on QRT that is dispatched to assess tornadoes that may be F4-F5.

From MEG: 4 tornadoes were F3, 1 was F2.

As of a conference call I was on yesterday at 2pm with several QRT members (including myself), none of us was aware that anyone from the QRT was dispatched for this event. One of those telecon members was the former head of the QRT (the former national WCM), and he said he had heard nothing.\

However, this does not necessarily mean nobody from the QRT was dispatched - this is an individual NWS Region HQ decision, and sometimes only a few QRT members are contacted without the others knowing right away. Still waiting to find out.
