PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN, MN
325 PM CDT TUE MAY 19 2015

...PRELIMINARY OVERVIEW OF THE MAY 16 TORNADOES...

HERE IS A VERY PRELIMINARY LIST OF THE MAY 16 TORNADOES IN THE
CHANHASSEN COUNTY WARNING AREA. THIS NUMBER WILL CHANGE SINCE WE
ARE STILL ASSESSING MANY DIFFERENT VIDEOS...AND MORE INFORMATION
ABOUT POSSIBLE DAMAGE OR MORE REPORTS MIGHT COME IN AND MUCH WILL
CERTAINLY BE CLARIFIED. THE TOTAL OF 15 MAY STILL GO DOWN...OR
POSSIBLY RISE.

THE ASSESSMENT INVOLVES TRYING TO DETERMINE WHETHER SOME VIDEOS
ARE OF THE SAME TORNADO...OR WHETHER ANOTHER ONE HAS FORMED. IT IS
NOT A STRAIGHTFORWARD TASK SINCE EXACT LOCATIONS...TIMES AND
DIRECTIONS OF VIDEOS MUST BE ASCERTAINED AND COMPARED WITH RADAR.

HAVING SAID THAT...HERE IS WHAT WE THINK WE KNOW SO FAR. TIMES
SHOWN ARE APPROXIMATE TOUCHDOWN TIMES...BUT THESE WILL ALSO LIKELY
CHANGE AS MORE INFORMATION COMES IN. MOST TORNADOES APPEAR TO HAVE
PRODUCED VERY LITTLE DAMAGE.
