April 21, 2005 - Southeast Kansas, Parsons Tornado

This video begins as a funnel cloud forms to my west near Parsons, Kansas. Shane Adams is heard on the radio warning me to move out. From his perspective behind me it appeared I was directly under the funnel. It passed a little to my north, however, toughing down in the trees a few hundred yards away. Next, the tornado intensified as it moved through open fields northwest of Parsons. After the tornado dissipated, the storm cycled and produced another very photogenic tornado northeast of Parsons. The last clip, shown at 4x speed, is of the last tornado of the day as the tornado crossed the Neosho River south of St. Paul.

More images from this day, and a map of the chase route can be seen here.
