PIREP question

Wed Apr 10, 2019 8:35 pm

Good Day, I was checking out the crazy weather over Colorado and came accross this:

Urgent PIREP B733
Obs Time: 2019-04-10T19:54:00Z
Turb intensity: SEV
Flight level: 350
Urgent PIREP: PUB UUA /OV PUB250050/TM 1954/FL350/TP B733/TB SEV MTW/RM LOST 4500FT-ZDV

What does the "RM LOST 4500FT" portion mean?

Well that's a PIREP you don't see too often from an airliner... wonder if we'll hear any more about that anywhere. A 4,500 foot loss of altitude is not a small thing.
