The supercells on May 22, in northwest Kansas, and on May 24, in Garfield County, Oklahoma, produced numerous tornadoes, including two at the same time on occasion. These two chase days are documented at some length, with the help of supplemental video courtesy of friends with me on the chase.
All of my previous chase videos are available now on DVD!! For those just getting into severe storms and chasing, these videos are a great way to become well-acquainted with chase strategy, storm morphology, supercell structure and development. Compare the price to the money you would save by trying to see storms like these in person! Price is $20 each, two for $35, three for $45, four for $55, or all of them for one million dollars!:
