- What a wild Mother's Day. There was
a moderate risk for severe weather and we targeted southeastern
Nebraska. one dominant supercell storm formed, but it was a high-precipitation
supercell, with lots of rain, and poor visibility. We did manage
to witness a couple of brief tornadoes as the storm approached,
but as we were retreating, another tornado formed right beside
us in a farmer's field. The tornado approached the road and knocked
over a piece of irrigation equipment, right onto our windshield!
We were all OK, and the vehicle didn't even sustain that much
damage. Just a broken windshield, and a broken side mirror. There
was almost no other damage at all. we got very lucky because
of our positioning.
- The tornado went on the strengthen
and become a 1.5 mile wide monster EF-3
