Imagery captured by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)’s GOES-16 satellite on April 14 reveals storms moving across the northern Texas region.
This footage includes both a normal and slowed down view of the satellite imagery.
Multiple tornadoes came down upon the Texas panhandle near the New Mexico border that day, News9 reported. Most were signed near Friona, in Palmer County, and Dimmitt, in Castro County.
On its website, the NOAA has stated a disclaimer that its “GOES-16 satellite has not been declared operational and its data are preliminary and undergoing testing.” The satellite launched in November 2016 and will be declared operational 6 to 12 months after the launch.
