Damaging Storm System over Conakry: Video Playback

October 16, 2013

There was a very damaging  storm this morning. It is reported that many houses were damaged by wind gusts. The TV station antenna was destroyed during the event. Storm cells were tracked as they approached Conakry and the rapid evolution of this particular thunderstorm over the city was tracked and Dangerous Thunderstorm Alerts were generated.

Modest thunderstorms approached Conakry from the south, southeast starting at about 0120 UTC. At ~0230 UTC a new storm developed and rapidly intensified over NE Conakry. A DTA was issued for Conakry at ~0235 UTC. The storm continued to intensify and expand west and south into the heart of Conakry over the next 30 minutes. By ~0330 UTC the storm had diminished and departed Conakry to the NW. There certainly could have been flash flooding and damaging winds between ~0245 UTC and ~0315 UTC.
