the woodward tornado 65 years later

Postby Seeker » April 10th, 2012, 1:08 am

today started out *plannned* as a baseball game at 5:00pm 65 years to the day of the woodward tornado the bloodiest in oklahoma history...the game was cancelled due to incoming weather... shortly there after 5:25 we caught a tornado forming behind walmart...five minutes after that the radio proclaimed a tornado warning...

after all these years of following weather I finally caught one spinning up and well defined right in front of me and my son's eyes...it was quite a sight...when there's an event like this going on in front of you 2 or 3 minutes seems like a long time...the rain shaft was in appearance, unusual then shortly there after it spun one up...hailstones preceeded it the size of those little cuties oranges and larger...only one of my vehicles got the windshield busted, my oldest daughters new edge and her husbands car is real close to totaled...

tuesday will be a bad day for the INS people...

got the video here ina bit...
