Wall cloud with violent rotation drops a
brief tornado near Sleepy Eye, MN.
Meso, wall cloud, and feeder tail approaching
Lake Crystal, MN.  Had to core punch the
cell.  Drove out of the  hail right into position.
We moved south out of the path as a large
tornado crosses highway 169 near Mankato,
MN.  Notice satellite funnel.  This one means
business.
Another view as Cullen and I head north as
the tornado weakens and lifts.  This super
cell is far from being done.
New tornado drops to the north east of Rapidan.
Beautiful pink tornado!
Our tax dollars at work and end of the chase for us.
