    Western Oklahoma Tornado


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     swim4ever31 is a storm chaser. He captured this photo Saturday, April 14, and he says the nearest town to this particular storm was Carmen, Oklahoma. 'We saw one funnel cloud, but it wasn't that impressive," he says. 'But about an hour before sunset we saw eleven different tornados.' He says seeing that many tornadoes a surreal experience. 'When you are a chaser you expect things out of the ordinary, but you don't expect eleven tornadoes. Five, that is within reason, eleven is not.' Using a weather radar, he says he monitored the tornado system that he captured in this iReport. He says this storm eventually was the one that hit Wichita, Kansas.

    This was one of the first tornadoes that touched down near Carmen, Oklahoma. This same storm produced 2 tornadoes on the ground at the same time and eventually pushed North to Kansas.
