  • Introduction to Video Content
  • The video showcases the formation of a tornado at O'Hare Airport in Chicago, captured live during NBC Chicago coverage. The meteorologists on screen provide a detailed analysis of the developing tornado, offering insights into its rotation, location, and potential formation. The footage reveals a counterclockwise circulation and a hook on the radar, indicating a possible tornadic development. The meteorologists discuss the surrounding weather conditions, such as the clearing to the south and the presence of lightning strikes. They also mention the lift of moisture and speculate on the potential presence of debris. The video captures the awe-inspiring nature of the tornado and emphasizes the meteorologists' dedication to capturing and understanding such phenomena. Overall, the footage provides a fascinating look into the real-time observation and analysis of severe weather events.
  • Subtitles section
  • We have had confirmed tornadoes on the ground in the Chicago viewing area.
  • They stretched right there.
  • Okay, let's zoom in on this, Joey.
  • Can you pan?
  • Okay, all right, let's just look at this.
  • Look, look, look.
  • Right here.
  • Yep, right there.
  • See it spinning up?
  • That's it.
  • Yeah.
  • Look at that spinning up there right in front of you.
  • And look at how on the southern flank of that, we're seeing that lower as well.
  • So we might be looking at the genesis of a tornado right here.
  • Look at that.
  • That's pretty amazing what we're looking at right there, Brad.
  • Stay with that image.
  • In fact, I'm going to get myself out of the image so you can really see what's going on there.
  • You get the scope of what's happening.
  • Right there in the left center, you can see the counterclockwise circulation.
  • Yep, looking at some radar returns.
  • I want you to stick with this.
  • But looking at some radar returns that's correlating with a hook that's showing up on the radar right now as well, Brad.
  • And this is the fact that we're seeing the clearing just to the south of this is not unsurprising of a tornadic development here either.
  • So you're on the backside of the rotation.
  • And this is coming right up over Rosemont.
  • In fact, what we're looking at in the foreground, you can see a couple of the towers.
  • You see the hotels there in Rosemont.
  • And that circulation is rather broad.
  • Did you see the lightning strike there, Pete?
  • Yep.
  • And I'm wondering, I want to stay with this picture.
  • But it would be interesting to see if we have any debris showing up on the debris detector here because of the lift that we saw.
  • We actually witnessed the moisture moving up.
  • And we're continuing to see that.
  • And I'm wondering, it doesn't look as though we have any sort of debris signature on that.
  • But it wouldn't be surprising if we did.
  • I'm hearing, Pete, no debris signature.
  • Okay.
  • And something we should talk about.
  • You mentioned artificial intelligence.
  • That some of these computer algorithms look at the radar information and assess what they think is happening.
  • For example, a tornado vortex signature.
  • But what we're seeing now is that ‑‑ hang on, let me turn off my phone once again.
  • It's going crazy on me.
  • But what we're seeing here is this information also could trip off a new product that we have that shows a debris tracker.
  • And we're not seeing that at all.
  • So that's some good news.
  • Now, let's talk safety once again.
  • If you're in Rosemont, you should be in your safe place at this point.
  • We're panning a little bit to the north.
  • And you're seeing that circulation moving off to the northeast.
