    Those are great pics, but are you sure they are from Katrina? They look like Midwestern supercell thunderstorm / tornado pics to me. Hurricanes are not known for spawning supercells.

    Where did you find them?

    http://www.spc.noaa.gov/faq/tornado/...tml#supercell2

    Do hurricanes and tropical storms produce tornadoes? Often, but not always. There are great differences from storm to storm, not necessarily related to tropical cyclone size or intensity. Some landfalling hurricanes in the U.S. fail to produce any known tornadoes, while others cause major outbreaks. Though fewer tornadoes tend to occur with tropical depressions and tropical storms than hurricanes, there are notable exceptions like TS Beryl of 1994 in the Carolinas. Relatively weak hurricanes like Danny (1985) have spawned significant supercell tornadoes well inland, as have larger, more intense storms like Allen (1980) and Beulah (1967). Hurricane Beulah, in fact, caused the second biggest tornado outbreak on record in numbers, with 115. Hurricane-spawned tornadoes tend to occur in small, low-topped supercells within the outer bands, NNW through ESE of the center -- mainly the northeast quadrant. There, the orientation and speed of the winds create vertical shear profiles somewhat resembling those around classic Great Plains supercells -- but weaker and shallower. Because tornado-producing circulations in hurricane supercells tend to be smaller and shorter-lived than their Midwest counterparts, they are harder to detect on Doppler radar, and more difficult to warn for. But hurricane-spawned tornadoes can still be quite deadly and destructive, as shown by the F3 tornado from Hurricane Andrew at La Place LA (1992, 2 killed) and an F4 tornado at Galveston TX from Hurricane Carla (1961, 8 killed). We don't know how many tornadoes hurricanes produce over the water. But the similarity in Doppler radar velocity signatures over water to tornado-producing cells in landfalling hurricanes suggest that it does happen -- and that they can be yet another good reason for ships to steer well clear of tropical cyclones. For more details, there is a set of articles on tropical cyclone tornadoes listed in the Scientific References section. For more information on hurricanes, go to the Tropical Cyclone FAQ by Chris Landsea and Stan Goldenberg.

    1. Those are tornadoes.

    If it was really a hurricane, you would just have pictures of torrential rainfall.

    2. Size.

    Hurricane Katrina was BIG.

    3. That looks like Iowa.

    Those do look like supercells. But they still are some amazing pictures.
