Nearly 75 percent of the time the National Weather Service issues a tornado warning, no tornado develops.

Beginning in May, a team of researchers led by some from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will use drones and other equipment with the goal of improving tornado forecasts and minimizing the cases where warnings are issued and the public deems it a false alarm.
