2011 - April - 14 Report



April 14, 2011 had a negative tilt trough and strong surface low setting up in central KS with moderate to strong instability setting up in the warm sector from this low down into eastern OK. I originally targeted up in the southeastern KS area but as the day went on it became clear that the better tornado chances were developing to the south.



Around 4pm CDT storm development was well underway along the dryline and I moved into position on the cell moving up from the southwest near Burbank, OK. This tornado developed litterally right behind me on the western end of the storm and caught me a little off guard. I chased it for about 5 minutes as it moved off into worse road and data areas. I had almost no internet connection on Sprint even with the booster.

Later as I moved east to intercept the next storm coming up from the south I got on this one south of Bartlesville, OK. This may have been reported as a tornado as police were patrolling my location along the highway and warning everyone away. Reports of a rain-wrapped tornado on the ground and moderate rotation on the velocity scans made it seem like something big was coming right into Bartlesville. Luckily for the folks in town it did not materialize. Later this evening was the Tushka, OK deadly tornado well to the south. That was too far out of my range to reach.

As awesome as the Tushka tornado was to experience, I'd trade chases with you to not have seen the things I saw afterwards. I'm ready to get a nice tornado that doesn't hit a town.
