    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    This storm had shown signs of weakening but quickly strengthened in about 10-15 minutes. A large wedge tornado formed directly in front of us. We were about 2/10 of a mile away. In fear that it was going to grow larger, we began to back up down the highway. Chasers were everywhere trying to get out of the way. It caught most of us off guard. I do apologize for any cussing.
