    Russell, Kansas Tornado


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     actinium6 says he and his friends were chasing storms in Russell, Kansas, on May 25 when they saw a tornado form in the sky. It soon fell apart, but the area was very violent, causing more tornados to form and dissipate soon after, he says. 't was really extraordinary, they look like tails almost,' he says. 'They take these strange shapes and then the break apart and you are left with this cloud. They are incredibly destructive, and it is amazing to see the atmosphere to come together like that, it is an extraordinary event.'
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

A thin whispy tornado appeared and then disappeared. A few minutes later another tornado appeared; a cone tornado touched down, then lifted again, then became an elephant trunk type before it roped out across the sky.
