A lot of nasty turbulence. A street of vortices north of the equator. When has that ever happened? Wow.

The current 'heat' across the country mixed with colder air around the Great Lakes.

The vortex street above the Equator is primarily stagnant air simply spinning due to high heat content. The only movement of the equatorial phenomena is Coriolis.

The Jet Stream is running north of the vortex street.  It was the Jet Stream that 'mixed' portions of each air mass to bring high turbulence to the Great Lakes where colder air would cause quick changes in 'static' conditions.

Earth is a very hot planet due to high carbon dioxide levels and the deaths related to these tornadoes can be attributed to the Climate Crisis. There is nothing 'normal' about those patterns.
