- What a day. We targeted southcentral
Kansas for tornadoes today and managed to see two. The first
one had a short funnel with a debris swirl on the ground and
the other had a photogenic slender cone like shape that touched
down extremely close to our vehicles. It was in the field right
beside the road and the circulation passed directly overhead.
- Unfortunately, several other supercell
storms formed in central Oklahoma and ended up doing a lot of
damage in places like Edward and Shawnee. Some of the tornadoes
were long-track, violent ones. As of right now, I don't know
the full extent of the damage or fatalities.
- Charles Edwards, the owner of Cloud
9 Tours lives in Shawnee and at one point, we thought that a
tornado was headed right for his house, but luckily, it passed
about 3 miles to the west.
- Today was one of those days when strong
tornadoes hit some populated areas.
