26th May 2008 - Kansas


Started the day in Emporia (Ks) and had a general chase target of SW Kansas - We chose the area around Greensburg and had lunch there. A nice Cu Field appeared and the 1st Storms fired near to Dodge City in a line down to Beaver (Ok) These storms were very grungy looking at first but 1 Supercell started to organise itself as it moved due East towards the Town of Pratt (Ks)

Storm speeds were rocketing and we were pretty much in the core most of the way for the 50 miles we were heading east. A Tornado was reported doing damage on the SE Side of Pratt and we were right in the Town as the Tornado was about 1 Mile in front of us. We have very grainy Video of this Tornado but as this was a very HP Storm it certainly was not photogenic.
