21st May 2011 - Texas Hill Country



Changeover day at DFW - The last guest arrived at around 530pm which meant the Oklahoma Risk was beyond us today which was a shame as an amazing cell went up between Ardmore and Oklahoma City which produced a photogenic Tornado. We still got some storms to the South of DFW Around the Killeen area and one went on to become Tornado warned. Overall though a bonus day as we were not even expecting to chase, on hindsight maybe we should have just trecked North and got into a much better position for the 22nd May which would become known for the devastating EF5 Which would hit Joplin (Missouri) just 1 day later from a right moving Supercell that started life near Independence (Kansas) and then tracked SE Towards Joplin at around 530pm. Unfortunately 151 people would lose their lives on this Sunday afternoon.
