Prolific Tornado-Producing Thunderstorm

Kingman, KS Tornado #9, May 19, 2012
The forecast was a good one.  We'll have to check the digital photos....but our count was 9 tornadoes, including one that was within 2 miles and then 1 mile, on the ground for over 20 minutes, shown at right.

This was initially southeast of Great Bend, KS, but then about 20 miles west of Wichita, all out in open country.

A really outstanding day.
