The Gustnado Footage!

Sample clip 0:10 min 0.2mb
Simon and I drove right into a large gustnado not long after that RFD really started kicking up dirt. The gustnado blew the car off the road, but don't worry, nothing serious or anything...we're fine!

Massive wedge? Nope, rainshaft.


We followed this beautiful hp supercell east on state highway 160.

Another gustnado formed just south of highway 160 near Argonla, KS. We shot video, then got east of it before it crossed the road.

The storm became so incredibly rain wrapped, there was no point chasing it any longer. Plus, we were anxious to sell our gustnado footage to KOCO Channel 5 in Oklahoma City. On our way down I 35, we came across another supercell west of Bromen, OK. We knew another storm was in northern Oklahoma, but we didn't know it would be like this.

What a beast!

Just a few minutes before it was too dark to see, and before the RFD plowed us, we saw two spectacular gustnadoes at the same time. They were to our SSE, maybe a mile away or less. One was rotating clockwise, and the other counter-clockwise. It was quite a site.
