The aftermath…

Good morning, Netizens...

As a former storm chaser, the most-difficult part, once you actually found a supercell capable of generating a funnel cloud was dealing with the incredible damage done where the tornado met humanity. While I realize most people reading this blog have little to no interest nor experience in dealing with tornadoes, as we generally do not frequently see them in Spokane. However, when and where they strike are still matters of personal interest.

The sleepy town of Hammon, Oklahoma had warning, and according to the news wires, no one was killed, despite some of the hysteria in the voices of the young storm chasers who videotaped the multi-funnel tornadoes yesterday. You can, of course, find their offerings on, as there are several different versions of how the tornado developed.

Here, then, is the video of the damage of the F2 tornado in Hammon, Oklahoma.
