Top Ten Extraordinary Weather Videos of 2013

By: Dr. Jeff Masters, 3:51 PM GMT on February 04, 2014

The year 2013 was another extraordinary one for weather extremes, with a world-record 41 billion-dollar weather disasters. With the rise of smart phones and YouTube, we now have an amazing capability to document and make available videos of disasters like these, and I present here my pick for the top ten most remarkable weather videos of 2013.


#1. As the EF-4 tornado that hit Washington, Illinois on November 17, 2013 leveled his home, this videographer kept the camera rolling. Warning: Chilling, much foul language, and extremely intense. Definitely R-rated. No one in the video was injured, but the tornado killed two people in a nearby home.


#2. Probably the most remarkable video of storm surge ever taken: footage from Super Typhoon Haiyan in Hernani, Eastern Samar, Philippines. The video was taken by Nickson Gensis, Plan Philippines Community Development Worker, from the top floor of a boarding house on November 8, 2013.


#3. The May 31, 2013 El Reno, Oklahoma EF-3 tornado as filmed from a commercial tornado tour led by Tempest Tours. This is one of the most impressive videos I've ever seen, from a meteorological standpoint, of a developing tornado. The chasers got closer to the tornado than they liked, as evidenced by the honking horns you hear, telling people to leave, a few minutes into the video.


#4. When the hunters became the hunted: Weather Channel storm chasers Mike Bettes and two photographers were in their Tornado Hunt vehicle when they were hit by a tornado in El Reno, Oklahoma on May 31, 2013. The tornado picked their car up off the ground and rolled it 6 - 8 times before depositing it in a field 200 yards away. All the occupants were wearing seat belts and the air bags deployed, likely saving their lives. Bettes sustained minor injuries, including stitches in his hand. Producer Austin Anderson suffered broken bones and required hospitalization. The El Reno tornado killed four storm chasers,including veteran chasers Tim Samaras, 55; Paul Samaras, 24; and Carl Young, 45.


#5. The Weather Channel storm chasers weren't the only ones who got themselves in an extremely dangerous situation on May 31. StormChasingVideo.com storm chaser Brandon Sullivan and his chase partner Brett Wright got caught in the tornado northwest of Union City, OK and slammed with debris as the tornado hit a barn that exploded in front of them.


#6. Storm chasers James Reynolds, Josh Morgerman and Mark Thomas of iCyclone.com were in the capital of Leyte Province, Tacloban, which received a direct hit from Super Typhoon Haiyan. Video includes the remarkable winds and storm surge of Haiyan, and the rescue of injured people from flood waters.


#7. You can see why landslides triggered by heavy rains from a tropical cyclone are among the most dangerous hazards of these storms, thanks to a dashboard cam that caught this extraordinary rock slide in Northeast Taiwan on August 31, 2013, after heavy rains from a cold front drenched the island with up to 200 mm (7.87") of rain in 24 hours. The rains fell upon soils already saturated by torrential rains from Tropical Storm Kong-Rey, which dumped up to 482 mm (19") of rain on Taiwan, killing three people. The driver of the car caught in the rock slide survived with minor injuries. Thanks go to wunderground member Robert Speta for bringing this video to my attention. A separate video showing the damage to the car and the course of the rock slide is here.


#8. Flooding in China from July 7 - 17, 2013 cost at least $4.5 billion. Rainfall amounts as high as 1,150 millimeters (45.3 inches) of rain fell in the Dujiangyan region, triggering Sichuan Province's worst floods in at least 50 years. In this remarkable video, we see a violent landslide engulf a car in on 13th July in Shaanxi Province, China. Amazingly, all four occupants survived. Dang Earthbenders!


#9. A tornado in Milan, Italy on July 29 hurls huge amounts of debris against the office building the video was taken from. The photographer is lucky the building's windows didn't shatter and seriously injure him. Jason Samenow at the Capital Weather Gang has more videos and details on the event.


#10. The view from veteran storm chaser Chris Novy's D-TEG dashcam as he accidentally drove his storm chasing vehicle into a swollen creek, nearly killing him. He posted this image on Facebook of the bridge that he drove off of. Note the guard rail that stops short of the plunge he took. I hope the road commission extends this guard rail to prevent a future accident!


Special mention for most artistic video of 2013: Adrift from Simon Christen on Vimeo. It's a spectacular 4-minute time-lapse video of fog rushing in past the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco. He writes: ""Adrift" is a love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area. I chased it for over two years to capture the magical interaction between the soft mist, the ridges of the California coast and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. This is where “Adrift” was born. The weather conditions have to be just right for the fog to glide over the hills and under the bridge. I developed a system for trying to guess when to make the drive out to shoot, which involved checking the weather forecast, satellite images and webcams multiple times a day. For about 2 years, if the weather looked promising, I would set my alarm to 5am, recheck the webcams, and then set off on the 45-minute drive to the Marin Headlands. I spent many mornings hiking in the dark to only find that the fog was too high, too low, or already gone by the time I got there. Luckily, once in a while the conditions would be perfect and I was able to capture something really special. Adrift is a collection of my favorite shots from these excursions into the ridges of the Marin Headlands."

I'm in Atlanta this week for the 94th annual meeting of the American Meteorological Society, and will probably be too busy to put up another post until Thursday at the earliest.

Quoting 990. weathermanwannabe:
Just noting that these type of temperature extremes we are seeing more often can really take their toll on the elderly. I saw on the news yesterday about a woman somewhere who may have frozen to death in her home (here in the US) because she could not afford propane prices to heat her home.

This is one of the reasons that many elderly and retired folks move away from colder climates (or try to) because of the cost of heating their homes on a fixed income. Problem is those who cannot move away and have to stay put where they are.

If we assume that we are going to have more of these type of events in the future, people (and particularly building contractors) are going to have to rethink hard about how they build well insulated housing in the future that can withstand extreme heat and cold. Windows are a big problem; it is nice to have big ones (to let some light in) in the Summer to be able to open up and get a breeze but in the Winter, they let the cold in (like having a hole in the wall).

Power companies and natural gas producers need to start thinking about offering discounts to senior citizens living in these cold climates.
That's one of the reasons I moved as a retiree on SS to an expat community in the mountains of western Panama. Here at 3,400' elevation, it seldom gets below 65 or above 80 deg F all year. Neither heating nor A/C are needed.

Electricity is about $25 per month for me, and every couple of months, I exchange my small propane tank which is used for cooking and an inline water heater for the kitchen sink. Showers in my current rental casa have an electric heater in the big shower head with 120v wires coming right out to the head. They are referred to as "suicide showers) but I haven't heard of anyone being electrocuted by one yet.

In my former home town of Sebastopol, California, 50 miles north of San Francisco and 15 miles from the coast, it gets into the 20's many nights in the winter, and a good heating system is necessary.
Quoting 967. Grothar:


Having lived in Europe for many years, I am quite surprised by the frequency and intensity of these storms. European weather, by most standards is mostly boring compared to the US and other parts of the world. I honestly do not remember seeing anything like that. I have been to that area many times. They even had it in Germany and Italy is flooding all over.


Hej Grothar min vän. I'm delighted to see you back on the blog. I hope you are doing alright. Best wishes and lots of strength to you.

It has been an insane start to the year here. I'm facing another storm tonight, #7 or 8 or so since Christmas, followed by a brief period of calm tomorrow and a bigger one on Saturday (as Zac pointed out). It's been a crazy rollercoaster these days and there is no sign of an end to this. The Southern part of the country is suffering more than we do, we don't get the huge amounts of rain, only the wind.

that weather sounds nice! What about Mosquitoes?
The report that Ocean City Emergency Management will release will indicate a sonic boom. A similar report back in December 2010 was followed back to Patuxent Naval Air Station, where test flights 20-30 miles off the Atlantic Coast caused sonic disturbances throughout the region. A spokesman in that case indicated that humidity, cloud cover and other atmospheric conditions may have enhanced the noise level. That's their story....and their stickin' to it."

So not an earthquake.

Even though the Florida Big Bend is at 49 degrees at the moment; it is overcast and drizzly and feels like the 30's. There is something to be said for the difference between a dry cold/hot and a humid one. On humid days in Florida, which is typically the norm, that humid heat makes you sweat and the humid cooler temps tend to chill you to the bone.

39 degrees over here near Ft. Walton Beach.

I drove past a similar ex-pat community in Honduras in the mid-90's while on a business trip down there and my Honduran buddy told me the same thing as to the lower costs for US retirees; however, he recently told me that all of those folks have moved away because of the growing violence.

Mosquitoes are a serious problem 300 miles east out past Panama City in the Darien rainforest area at sea level. There's been lots of cases of dengue fever and a number of deaths there recently. However, at this elevation, I haven't seen any mosquitoes. There are other biting insects, but nothing like Florida and the eastern/Midwestern U.S. in summer. There are occasional scorpions and poisonous snakes including the Fer de Lance and corals, but again, the U.S. has its share of venomous critters.

Lots of folks in the Arizona and Nevada desert areas were hearing sonic booms (which also registered on seismic monitors) over the decades when the Air Force/CIA were flying their "secret" planes ranging from the SR-71 to the more recent hyper-sonic x-planes.

Given the high population areas in Maryland-Delaware, either military test flights off the coast, somebody coming in from a trans-Atlantic test flight for an emergency landing (that was supposed to land in the desert), or somebody chasing UFO's is the most likely explanation.........

Today may well be an exception to the rule but as a rule, when it is cold in Florida the air is dry and the dew points are low. Cold and humid is not a common combination which is one of the main reasons that snow is so rare here. The temps get down low enough for snow several times each winter in Central and especially in North Florida but usually the humidity level is low.

On another note, most people unlike ourselves here (meaning those with little to no weather knowledge) have the false impression that humidity only happens when it is hot. They simply cannot understand that humidity has nothing to do with temperature but is merely a measure of moisture content in the air.

Would a sonic boom show up on a seismograph?


Yes; as a matter of fact the booms, on one particular test flight in the Nevada/Arizona desert area was "traced" across a large swatch by several siesmic monitors. A trans-Atlantic flight to the Nevada Desert making an emergency landing at a military field on the East Coast is not unheard of if the pilot experienced a serious enough emergency and could not make it all the way in to the regular base in the desert. One of those made an emergency landing at Patrick Air Field in Florida in the 1990's and everyone on base was told to go inside, or draw their blinds, so as not to "see" the nature of the plane landing; base security then immediately tarps it over as soon as they can and get it into an hanger unless the emergency was fire related.

Only if they were far away, if the sonic boom was of close orgin it would only sound like a single boom.

Everyone have a safe and quiet evening and See Yall sometime tomorrow.........Can't wait for the current brutal Winter to pass to give the folks up North and in the Mid-West some much needed relief (heating bills included).
Good morning, afternoon and evening, everyone. It's 29 degrees with a wind chill of 21, another chilly morning here. A high expected later on of 44, so we'll probably be about 36 or 37 if the current trend holds true.

It sleeted and snowed yesterday, quite a few parents coming in to pick up their kids as roads got slippery. But by the time I left in late afternoon all the roads were fine.

Breakfast's on the sideboard: steak, eggs and hash browns, Belgian waffles with strawberries or powdered sugar, croissants, creamy oatmeal with blueberries, cinnamon streusel coffee cake, omelets with cheese, mushrooms, peppers and diced ham or bacon, Oversize Breakfast Biscuits with sausage patties and strawberry jelly on the side, cheesy grits and shrimp, cheese Danishes, yogurt, fresh fruit and orange, apple or pineapple juice. Regular and decaf coffee with flavored creamers to the side. Enjoy!
