- Today was our first storm chase day
of 2016. I was teamed up with Mark Robinson and Jaclyn Whittal
from The Weather Network and we were targeting Kansas.
- The storm that went up near the town
of Leoti sat almost stationary for a couple of hours, giving
us plenty of opportunity to photograph the incredible structure
of the storm and we witnessed at least one tornado underneath
it. We tried to get closer, but the road was blocked by one of
the Doppler on Wheels research vehicles. It had tried to turn
around and got stuck in the ditch. This prevented us from seeing
some of the other tornadoes that were spotted, but you never
know what kind of obstacles you are going to encounter while
out storm chasing. It was a fantastic first day for us.
