    Kansas EF4 Tornado


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     stormstalker, of Hays, Kansas, shot this video near Langley and Marquette on April 14. 'My brother, Brandon; his wife, Jennifer; and I were traveling eastbound on Kansas Highway 4 east of Geneseo, Kansas,' he says. 'The tornado was located to our southeast when we were filming it.' They were about 1.5 miles from the tornado. 'My brother and I have been chasing storms for several years, but an event of this magnitude is a rarity,' he says. 'We do film severe weather and the occassional tornado frequently during our storm pursuits every spring.' He says although they were not personally affected by the storm, it did destroy a rural Ellsworth County, Kansas home. 'The roads are clear in the affected area, but there are many power company crews working to restore power,' he says.
