THE ULTIMATE TORNADO UP CLOSE – Divine Tornado Conception 4K





Unbelievable swirling clouds appear to be fertilized by a tornado. This violent, long track tornado packed EF3 tornado force winds over open Kansas country southwest of Dodge City on May 24, 2016. The incredible twister took on many dramatic shapes during its 32 minute life span and destroyed a home near Ensign Kansas. For licensing 4K footage contact hankschyma@yahoo.com

At 5:09 PM, GOES revealed an exploding thunderstorm initiating near Minneola Kansas. By 5:21, NWS issued a severe thunderstorm warning for this storm and by 5:24 a tornado warning. At about 5:53 the tornado touched down and tracked over mostly open farm land as it grew into a photogenic monster stove pipe with a max path width of approximately 300 yards / 274 meters. As the path of the tornado curved to the northwest toward Ensign, the tornado began to reveal its strength spewing dirt and crops high into the atmosphere and toward the end of it’s life, hit a structure verifying EF3 force winds. You can see debris from this structure whirling around the tornado. After 32 minutes on the ground, the tornado roped out at 6:25PM. Two people were critically injured from this tornado outbreak but no fatalities have been reported.

This was only the first tornado of 12 that I witnessed during this unprecedented tornado producing cyclic supercell. Several clutches of twin tornadoes and at one occasion 3 tornadoes were on the ground simultaneously under the storm. You can see these tornadoes in Part 2 of this youtube series.

WEATHER CONDITIONS:
Extreme instability was in place east and southeast of a low centered over the Western Kansas and Colorado border. Near a dry line and outflow boundary triple point, strong heating, ML CAPE from 2500-3000 j/kg, dew points near 70 degrees F and very steep mid-level lapse rates set the stage for splitting supercells with significant tornadoes.

  1. ………….. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO It was a tornado I don’t like tomatoes it’s not good for your body you will die to heaven

  2. "Ima get out and take some stills"……….WTF do you think video is………A series of still shots rotated past your face in a rapid succession. Fuck getting out, I'd take stills from the video……

  3. Hank, what exactly causes the tornado to lose its strength and dissipate? Why do some massive storms produce measly tornados and some small ones produce monsters? Growing up in Georgia I was told, "we dont get tornados often, we got too many hills! It ain't flat enough for a tornado to rip through!" Is there any truth to that, or are tornados in flatter states more popular because of their photogenic ways? Are there really more tornados in flat lands than other types of terrain? Do flatter areas just give the air the best mixture of all that good stuff to produce a tornado? I remember the big tornado atlanta had a few years back but I believe that was hidden in a ton of rain and it didn't last a very long time. With atlanta being very "hilly", can this disrupt the pattern of a tornado?

  4. WOW! Amazing footage! You are the best in the business at teaching us what's going on in and around tornadoes. Your commentary adds a personal touch that elevates the story you are telling us. Amazing, Keep up the great work!

  5. I have no words… so glad this one was in open fields so we could just admire its power and beauty without worry for loss of life or property, amazing.

  6. Love the reference to the one tornado vid where the guy and his wife are watching a tornado from their porch and he is like “Susan get my pants”

  7. Some of your smart ass comments actually kill the video. Are you Bipolar or something? Ya need to take your chill meds dude.

  8. Absolutely amazing footage – I love that you let it run without music or editing, so we could really VISIT with the tornado as it was born and proceeded to dance through the countryside. Question: you sometimes refer to tornadoes as "sentient". What does that mean?
