Quote: Question. We have a tree that looks twisted, like what a tornadoe would do. Could Rita have had little tornadoes come down as she passed over us and these weren't recorded?
Yeah, little tornadoes are pretty common in the eyewall and immediately near it, and due to the density of the convection in that immediate area they are often missed in the "official recording".
I had a friend's home that suffered a roof-lifting event (which did severe damage to the house) during Ivan - there was no recorded tornado at that location, but the damage to the roof and in her yard was definitely tornadic in nature.
