Matt Meister, FOX21 Storm Team chief meteorologist, shares the formation of two tornadoes near Joes on Tuesday with a behind-the-curtain look using 3D radar.
Just prior to 2 p.m., radar showed the circulation of the first tornado descending toward the ground. A few minutes later, new radar information showed the tornado having touched down.
By 2:09, another thunderstorm crashing into the first storm produced another tornado, a little farther to the southeast from the first tornado. According to storm chasers and residents in the area, the two twisters were on the ground together for about 75 seconds.
