Storm Chasing: June 21, 2009 Tornado In Minnesota

After spending an entire afternoon last week baking in the sun on Thursday’s Mod Risk/Hatched Tornado area bust, I waited until initiation with the intention of catching up with the storms a few hours after initiation in Iowa.   That plan was shot down by I-35 construction zone traffic which added more than an hour and  a half to our trip.  It all work out though as storms fired just west of Albert Lea.

We randomly ran into our normal chase partner Bill Doms, who was already on the storm.  Our tornado warned target storm didn’t produce in our presence, but a storm to it’s south gave us a funnel cloud and two tornadoes before nightfall.

We have good video for once, which should be up later in the week.

    Isn’t it great when things just work out? I still think Kristen is the lucky charm. How many tornadoes has she seen now? It’s been 4 for sure when I was around.
