NASA’s Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite reportedly captured the Texas tornadoes in three dimensions (3D) on Tuesday, April 3, 2012.

According to reports, the TRMM satellite was able to measure thunderclouds and rain in 3D during the period of violent storms in Texas on Tuesday. The recorded images include thunderstorms that are more than 8 miles (13 kilometers) high.

The images were captured at about 8:30 PM, local time. It showed a line of severe thunderstorms which passed through Texas, Louisiana and the southern part of Arkansas.

Reports said that the 3D images show the rate of precipitation produced by the storm clouds. The red areas are said to be spots where the storms dropped 2 inches of rain per hour.
