OVERVIEW

The National Weather Service is currently in the process of preparing an in depth overview for the tornadic event in which three tornadoes moved across the Southern Tier of Western New York on Saturday July 24, 2010. We expect this write-up to be available late this week or early next week. However, we've received numerous requests for official storm survey pictures over the past several days, so we've provided a select few. Please return to this page over the next week to see additional photos and a complete overview.
DAMAGE SURVEY

The NWS conducts a thorough damage survey of significant severe storms. For tornadoes, the NWS looks at damage and assigns a rating as defined by the new Enhanced Fujita Scale, which looks at a number of damage indicators (ex homes, trees, mobile homes, schools etc), and then looks at the degree of damage for each case, and then assigns a lower and upper bound wind speed. Once the survey is completed, an EF rating is assigned to the tornado.
Here are some of the images taken by NWS personnel during the storm survey of the Mayville tornado.


NWS storm survey - Mayville - Roof damage to a warehouse near Chautauqua Lake...then the debris field follows along the path of the tornado out to/across Chautauqua Lake.
.


NWS storm survey - Mayville - Areal shot of residential damage. Numerous trees down and roof/siding damage.


NWS storm survey - Mayville - Residential damage...downtown Mayville.

NWS storm survey - Mayville - Another angle of the damage path heading out across Chautauqua Lake.

NWS storm survey - Mayville - Debris thrown more than a mile away litters this field.

NWS storm survey - Mayville - Major EF2 damage to these structures in DeWittville...across Chautauqua Lake from Mayville.

NWS storm survey - Mayville - Almost complete destruction to this building in DeWittville.


NWS storm survey - Mayville - Condos on the Chautauqua Lake shore line that lost the majority of its roof. Not visible in this photo, but a kayak from the lake was thrown into one of these condo units.
