This should be a teachable moment for anyone who chases or wants to chase thunderstorms. New video shows what happened when a guy following one of the twisters in Missouri Sunday accidentally drove right into the path. He fortunately lived to tell about it.
My wife is a meteorologist, so I see a lot of weather-related things. So, when I say that this is one of the wildest clouds I've ever seen, that gives you an idea how crazy this Missouri cloud is where it rolls like an ocean wave.
If you've ever had the privilege of visiting the Great Lakes area, you know that weather can change in a heartbeat. One visitor near Lake Michigan captured a stunning time-lapse of a storm that suddenly popped up rolling in over the water.
Since my wife is a meteorologist, I tend to be interested in weather things. This is the result of that. I wondered out loud what the worst tornado in Illinois history was and almost everywhere I looked agreed that it was a 200-mile-long EF5 that devastated multiple states back in 1925.
