1999-05-16 Treynor, IA Tornado (my first intended chase)

And so, with one last look at Intellicast radar, with an All-Hazards radio velcroed to the dashboard along with KFAB and KMA radio, I headed through Omaha, grabbed IA-92 east hoping to get in the way of whatever happened!

I had seen one low-contrast tornado west of Treynor while I was south of it, and I found a spot with good views to the east as another cell moved to the northeast:

Bypassed the wall-cloud, went from stratus right to funnel:

and then tornado:

I don’t take damage photos anymore and I only show these because of the next tornado off to the west!
