…from a safe location and distance.
Here is a brief video and you can hear the siren in the background. The lowering in the center was slowly rotating. Saw one very brief well-defined funnel cloud but I never saw a tornado.
the storm continued to move to the east southeast. Here is a funnel cloud moving past my house to the south. The video quality is not great but I could see rotation in it. There had been a report that the circulation had reached the ground at K-96 and Oliver a few minutes below.
I know how to do this safely. Was never in any danger. I moved before the circulation got close.
Watch my blog for storms in southern Kansas. There is no need for you to get out and risk your safety.
Hailing at the Smith House right now. Hail is marble size.
And, here is what the radar looked like when the first video was taken. There was a hook echo, perhaps too large a hook which caused rain-cooled air to undercut the circulation. I’m looking west from the blue “bullseye” symbol:
The Doppler wind display showed imbalanced circulation.
