Over the course of the week following the event, several undergraduate students and a faculty member from the Department of Atmospheric Sciences conducted some simple damage analysis. Armed with a GPS-enabled digital camera (Ricoh 500SE) and a hand-held Garmin GPS unit, we attempted to document the fairly extensive damage that occurred in and around the Omaha area. The damage data were then related to the Level II radar data from the WSR-88D at OAX in an attempt to understand what portions of the convective system produced the damage observed at the surface. The results showed that the most significant surface damage occurred on the southern periphery of an intense low-level circulation that developed along the leading edge north of the apex of the bow. Additionally, the results highlighted the inadequacy of the standard reporting system when used to examine marginal and/or non-tornadic events for which the NWS does not conduct an analysis.
