Storm Chasers Catch Big Tornado in Kansas

untitled Storm Chaser Quintin Martindale captured great video of a tornado in western Kansas on Thursday, April 22nd, 2010.  To see the video, click on the picture to go to Quntin’s facebook video page.  Quintin says the tornado touched down about ten miles northwest of Lakin, KS on highway 25.  Quintin was chasing with Derek Shaffer when they caught this tornado about 200 yards away from them.  Later reports to the National Weather Service claimed this tornado reached a mile wide later in it’s life cycle.  But this is great video of a strong, mature tornado.

Great shooting by Quintin and we thank him for sharing his video with us!
