    Severe weather

    McPherson, Salina, & Solomon, KS Tornado - April 14, 2012

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     mazziod told me, 'I have been storm chasing for three years and this was by far the most amazing storm have witnessed. I had encountered potential funnel clouds before, but none ever transformed into tornadoes, so this was my first.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    iReporter's moderateben and mazziod were on the chase through Central/Northern Kansas, traveling from Emporia through McPherson, where they eventually met up with the storm.  They pursued a funnel cloud  from Lindsborg to Salina.  Continuing on, we headed north through Solomon where the tornadoely ultimately touched down and tracked for 9 minutes until it eventually roped out.
