El Reno, OK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: It's hard to even be excited about the second wedge of the week. As many of you have probably heard, Tim Samaras, his son Paul Samaras, and his chase partner Carl Young were killed when their chase vehicle was impacted by this tornado. Tim wasn't just another chaser, he was one of the forefather of storm and tornado research. His presence in tornado alley will be sorely missed. UPDATE: Tornado now rated EF5. Widest tornado on record at 2.6 miles wide. A DOW truck measured 296mph winds.

About weatherfanatic2010


My name is Dylan and I'm 22. I live in a little town called Bowie, Texas. I've been taking pictures my entire life, but 3 years ago I bought my first DSLR a few months before I went storm chasing for the first time. I'm addicted to both now. I've had 3 successful years of chasing and I've seen 22 tornadoes and countless supercells. recently I've become interested in astronomy and astrophotography. Most of my pictures are either weather or space related but I enjoy photographing just about anything! Anyways, enjoy!
