First Tornado of 2009


I tracked a cell showning good signs of rotation in the Lawrence Kansas area. I followed the NE tracking storm until i found a good area of rotation. I saw what looked like the start of a tornado so I stopped and readied the gear. I started filming and was lucky enough to get the official start of the tornado. It was picking up quite a bit on the ground which I later found out was a home and steel garage. I snapped a few photos and moved on to track another I thought may come along to the North. I did not arrive in time as i stopped to make sure everyone was OK at the house that got hit. I encountered very heavy rain and some minor flooding but no hail the rest of the chase.
