Clark County, KS 04/23/14

A lone LP Supercell over a Kansas field. Our best videos & photos from Clark County, KS last night. The last one is simply stunning — and the photo doesn’t do the storm justice!

You really should click the photos to see them full-size…

4x speedup so the rotation of the mesocycle can be easily seen. Be sure to click the settings gear and go full-screen, so you can see it in HD!

360 view as the LP cell passed closer to us.
