Tornado

Amelia, Nebraska - May 16, 2004

After a very early morning start in Norman Oklahoma, we were able to get into position in Nebraska to witness a strong tornado near the town of Amelia. Visibility was poor and the prospects of finding a tornadic storm looked slim but we were able to follow a small inflow band that led us directly to a huge rotating supercell. The tornado formed in the rain core but soon moved out of the rain and into better view. We approached the tornado from the east and at one point we had to scramble to get out of its way as it began to cross the road.
