Highlights from the amazing NW Texas tornado outbreak! April 23, 2021, Near Lockett, Texas


April 23, 2021 Texas Tornadoes

We chased a single supercell thunderstorm from birth until death southwest of Vernon, Texas. We observed 5 tornadoes from this storm and each one that occurred was better than the last. We were able to observe two tornadoes from close range. This was a career day for many chasers, but for Tour Director Erik Burns finally grabbing a shot he has wanted for nearly 20 years was finally achieved. A tornado with a rainbow crossing it! Here are the photo highlights of this incredible day!


Tornado #1 for the day. A nice chunky cone.
