Researchers recreated the supercell that birthed the deadly ‘El Reno’ tornado in 2011 a monster storm which clocked in at the strongest tornado category and stayed on the ground for nearly two hours. The simulation shows how several ‘mini tornados’ formed as the main funnel emerged, along with structures of rain cooled air that flowed up and around the system..
