I am happy and grateful to report that all of my Guests
saw tornadoes on their Private Tours in 2004.
May 24, 2004
This was my first full "day off" after over 2 enjoyable weeks
on the road chasing storms with my Guests.
What does a storm chaser do on his "day off"--yup you guessed it-- I chased
I was in position SE of Hastings, NE when the first towers went up
on what would become the most incredible tornadic supercell in my 20+
years of chasing storms.
I was filming as the first tornado formed near Deweese, NE.
On the video you can hear me as I phone in this report to NWS Hastings.
This was the first report they had received that this storm
had a tornado on the ground.
They quickly upgraded the severe thunderstorm warning to a tornado warning.
Other chasers who have seen the video of this tornado
said it is the most amazing tornado video they have EVER seen.
The life cycle of this tornado may be some of the most unique ever captured
The tornado formed FROM the rope stage and grew from that stage.
This is opposite from usual tornado life cycle.
Another unique aspect of this tornado was the very complex motion around
At one point you can see snake like vortices spiralling around the main
I can not recall seeing anything quite like this on any other tornado
I have finally had time to watch the video a few times after
getting caught up with things at home/office.
It appears the rope tornado "handed off" to a 2nd cloud base to the SE
At this point the rope portion had dissipated and what
was left was a tube tornado from the new base.
I have never seen anything like this happen before.
This transformation to the 2nd cloud base --could-- be called a 2nd tornado
In the following shot you can see debris in the air to the right of the
tornado just above the tree.
This tornado slowly weakens until there is only non-rotating dust on the
At this point a new thin white funnel forms and briefly touches down (tornado
# 2 or 3?? at this point).
I will skip ahead a few tornadoes to a white tornado that ranks in the
top 3 most beautiful tornadoes I have ever captured on video.
At one point I am filming with the window open
when a lightning bolt strikes in front of the tornado. This awesome shot
is shown below.
It is hard to get a count of the exact # of tornadoes I saw that day
since things were happenening so incredibly fast.
I have around 15 tornadoes on WXP-7 from May 24 alone--you decide the
exact count if you order this video.
I also saw 3-5 other tornadoes that I was unable to get on video due to
chaser repositioning issues.
Most of these were brief touchdowns and one was to my SW as 2 other tornadoes
were on the ground.
Other chasers have confirmed these 3 tornadoes on the ground at the same
In addition to this I also filmed 2 tornadoes on the ground at the same
time TWICE on this day.
I could not confirm ground contact with one of these due to trees but
I feel it likely did touchdown.
In the following shot 2 tornadoes are on the ground.
This is more clearly show in the video than on this still shot
In the next shot a multi-vortex tornado forms.
Tornado # 10 or 11?? next 2 shots.
I was filming as this large tornado had crossed the road a few blocks
in front of me.
In the video you can see the IMAX Tornado Pursuit vehicle drive past me
towards tornado # 10 or 11.
For those not familar with this vehicle it looks somewhat like a spaceship
Yes storm chasing has changed a LOT in the past few years--but that is
Tornado # 11 or 12?? forms incredibly fast as I pan to the left from tornado
# 10 or #11.!
