Spectacular Tornado Video -- And, Audio

We have had major tornado research projects in progress in Kansas this year. Pecos Hank, a singer and storm chaser, has produced a spectacular video of the Tipton, Kansas, tornado of May 28, a storm that has been overshadowed by the Lawrence - Linwood Tornado that was in progress simultaneously.
Left arrow: thin tornado (goes all the way to ground)
Middle: horizontal funnel cloud
Right arrow: tornado with debris cloud
Right circle: tornado in formation stage
Pecos Hank is a singer, musician and storm chaser and he was in north central Kansas on May 28 (while I was chasing the Lawrence storm) and got this spectacular storm as part of a research group. His attention to detail includes the "waterfall" sound of the tornado, except that, at first, it does sound like a distant train.

The must-watch video is above. Yes, he gets close but he is part of a research project and he knows what he is doing.

Hank is also the singer and producer of my all time favorite music video which includes, you guessed it, tornadoes.

So, sit back and enjoy these videos. And, keep in mind that he gets close to these storms so you don't have to.
