The last 14 minutes of coverage from WAVE as an MCS comes through the area on the evening of May 25, 2011. The event started out with a few thunderstorms popping up in the late afternoon hours, with the INCREDIBLE shear in the area, they quickly began to rotate, and since the environment was favorable, they were able to stay alive for a LONG time. One popped up north of Evansville and tracked ENE over parts of Dubois, Crawford, and Orange counties. A tornado warning was issued on it just as it crossed into Lawrence County (and eventually NWS Louisville issued a warning for the extreme NW tip of Orange County). the storm produced a couple of EF2 to EF3 tornadoes as it moved through those counties. The main line is shown here. It was a BIG tornado producer out to the west and EVERY warning that came out along it was a tornado warning. However, as they entered the Louisville area, they began to gust out and lose a lot of their rotation. As it turns out, NWS Louisville only issued 2 tornado warnings in the Louisville TV market coverage area.
