Storm Chasing- Missouri…

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

Storm Chasing. North Western Missouri. A long day of travel and positioning put my partner Tom Sadowski, and I in place for a tremendous storm which eventually produced both a tornado, and grapefruit sized hail. Both of which, I’m glad to say, we managed to avoid. We started our chase just North of Kansas City, MO in Cameron, and proceeded West into Kansas at about 4:00 p.m. We followed two developing cells which were slowly building across Northeastern KS from Falls City and Auborn Northeast towards Amity, Weatherby and eventually back to Cameron. The chase took hours, and many miles, but we basically ended up right where we started. Here’s some of what we saw.
