November 7, 2011 - Southwest Oklahoma Tornadoes

An incredible chase day for November! Left for southwest Oklahoma with Steve Miller, catching initial storms near Quanah, Texas before deciding to head southeast to intercept the rapidly intensifying storm approaching Tipton, Oklahoma. we reached Tipton just as it began producing tornadoes, and were able to follow the storm for a couple of hours, seeing multiple tornadoes from Tipton to Fort Cobb. After having a celebratory steak at the Cimarron Steak House, the day was capped off with a magnitude 4.7 earthquake, Oklahoma's quakenado day!
