Well the first week of chasing has been insane. My group has seen 6 tornadoes this week including 2 wedges.
We caught this one near Bennington, Ks about 10 miles north of Salina, KS. Fortunately is was nearly stationary and did very little damage. I was on the ground for about 45 minutes and didn't even move a mile.
I'm in no way proud of the other wedge we saw. It was the El Reno, OK tornado. I couldn't be after all the destruction, and of course the loss of Tim Samaras, his son Paul Samaras, and his chase partnet Carl Young. They were caught in the tornado and their truck was detroyed beyond recognition. This is a huge loss to the chaser community.
The tornado was partially rain wrapped but the left edge was visible.
Here is the truck Tim, Paul, and Carl were in.
