- Well, today turned out to be a lot
more interesting than I expected it to be.
- Our day started early. Our group was
already in chase mode as we were leaving the parking lot after
brunch in San Antonio, and we just kept chasing storms until
we finally pulled into the hotel at 1:00 A.M.
- A line of supercells formed in south
Texas early in the day and we targeted the closest one near the
town of Pawnee. Even with the limited road options, we were still
able to witness at least 2 tornadoes. We immediately sent in
the reports, but the storms were not done. not by a longshot.
The supercells just kept coming, training one after another,
all in the same general area. As soon as we were done with one
storm, we would just drop south to the next one, and they all
had tornado warnings on them.
- I took several large, multi-image panoramic
photos of some of the more dramatic looking storms.
- One, very large storm formed across
the border in Mexico, then entered the U.S. late in the day.
It was our last target for the day. as we got near it in the
town of Freer, it dumped a tremendous amount of rain, flooding
out the streets, turning them into swift moving rivers.
