I'm glad it wasn't in York, PA! This is a great shot. Hopefully no one was hurt. We've been having some crazy weather in the States lately. Be safe out there!

we've had our share of tornados up here in the Northeast..just recently in CT/MASS..the damage (human & material) is significant in almost all cases..too bad there wasn't a way to 'seed' the couds like they do for hurricanes to prevent them from happening in the first place! I know that would be virtually impossible to do with unpredictable tornados.. aside from that..a great weather shot and AC!! :)

wow the condensation tube is invisible but the dirt did make it visible, great capture and good work ! It's hard to get a lightning shot so even more for a tornado ! Would be 1 in a lifetime in Quebec (Even if i chasse) 1 near miss 2 years ago, one hitted 15 miles south of here but i never saw the radars to chasse it because i was not there !!!!! Well 10+ Favorites !

EXCELLENT A/C CAPTURE STORMY!!! Reminds me of a tornado tape I have,,like Twister on the Plains,or some dumb title,,but it shows one taking a train out,in central Neb or further!! WELL DONE EXCITING SHOT!!! I figured you folks might be in for it out there,,,we just had straight-line winds,heavy rain,,but it sure looked omminous before it hit,,,!! Thanks for sharing these!!! Be Safe!!Into my faves!
