Data was collected on a long-lived tornadic supercell that developed in the northeastern Texas Panhandle and moved into the Oklahoma Panhandle.  At least three tornadoes are known to have occurred within this storm.  The first was the most significant and had the best data collection with mobile mesonet transects while dual-Doppler data was being collected simultaneously.  TTU Ka-Band captured tornado scale vortices and the developing and mature tornado.  The Sticknets had one of their best deployments, and all other radars and instrument teams reported good deployments.
