great shot!  I always wanted to see a tornado in person (from a safe distance). I bet the sound is something else!

Well actually the only sound you hear is the wind.  There isn't any real sound until it hits the ground.  At this state it is considered a mesocyclone with the potential to transform into a full out tornado.  From there the sound is associated with high winds and debris within the targeted area.  Took a meteorology class last year and aced it.  I am a licensed Ham Operator and a trained weather spotter for our area.  Did you know you can tell what a front is going to do by the kinds of clouds it produces?  Some clouds increase a meso's chances and some decrease it.  Nice to know when you're around one.

You sound very knowledgeable about them.  Isn't June the worst month for them in the Midwest?

Actually it can be anytime the wind currents set the stage.  Cold air from the north west and warm moist air coming in from the Gulf.  You add wind to that mixture and you can have the makings of a wonderful thunderstorm. The problem comes when the air masses meet and begin to circulate in a counter clockwise motion.  That's when the camera's come out.  Of course you have to be in the right place at the right time and that hardly ever happens. 

Common here from March or April through August and September.  Then they start moving eastward a bit.  One of our worst was May 3, 1996 I think but don't hold me to that.  I was actually in that one.  It went through Moore OK, bounced around coming in from there, hit Haysville, KS a suburb of Wichita, and then took the south part of the city.  The 3rd time the sirens went off we went for cover, driving east, drove right into that sucker as it was coming through.  I think that was an F3 or F4 can't remember.  Did a real nice job of rearranging the landscaping.  Telephone poles looked like toothpicks, gas lines squealing, water gushing out everywhere, it leveled an entire city block in about 5 minutes.  I remember that since I drove into the horizontal wind and rain bands and couldn't see anything that we were in trouble.  Found a street and pulled off and found a overpass to get under as it went over the top of us.  One person died in Wichita, I forget how many people died in Moore.  So yep know them very well.  So I began to learn about them and took a meteorology class and aced that about a year and half ago.  So come spring being April, I will be on the lookout for some weather shots.  Some part of me though doesn't really want it to be that bad again.

wow!  Right in the thick of it....  I remember the Moore one, because my co-worker here in OR has a brother in that town - him & his wife & baby survived - they were on CNN that night...I saw the clip.  Stay safe!

No offense but there's been times that I think that these storms kinda hit Moore, OK more than most.  There are a couple of famous storm chasers that live in that city too.  Some people were ok, but some weren't.  Maybe they should make Moore, OK into a memorial for all those souls it's taken.  Been wonderful talking with you.  This is what keeps me going on, havin' good conversation and being home where it's comfy.  Take care my friend.
