I *so* want to go storm chasing.... but after today's devastation, I am so leery (not so much afraid, but leery) and would want to make sure I was with a group of serious, experienced chasers. :)

I grew up in Kansas--and this is a great capture of a massive beast! Still, it's possible that no one was killed or badly injured. Stay safe and keep taking these photos.
