Stock Footage: Not since 1979 has the high plains been issued a PDS (Particularly Dangerous Situation) tornado watch. This day warranted the watch, too. As the daytime temperatures climbed the atmosphere became volatile and unstable. As storms erupted, they very quickly became supercells, lofting baseball and bigger sized hail into the towns, houses and fields of Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska. The first tornado that I documented while storm chasing was the tornado that formed near Grover, CO. At 4:52pm mountain time, the first tornado touched down. The tornado took on many shapes, sizes and looks as it twisted through the high plains. After some time, the tornado roped out. However, the tornado threat was still looming. Eventually, tornadoes near Bushnell, Kimball and Bridgeport, NE were warned and confirmed by storm chasers in the area. Amazing supercell structure, dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning and huge hail were encountered this day.
