Cray Supercomputer Gave Forecasters an Edge in Tornado Prediction

August 12, 2013

The deadly EF5 tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma on May 20 was unique in several ways. Not only was it one of the strongest twisters ever recorded, but forecasters were able to issue a tornado warning 36 minutes in advance, saving lives. Playing a part in that forecast was a Cray supercomputer at the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS). Read more…
