Another Busy Thursday Night



For the second Thursday in a row, severe weather rumbled over northern and central Kansas. Storm Team 12 Chasers Scott Roberts, Brandon Ivey, Mikey Gribble, Tony Laubach and Ed Oneal were in hot pursuit!

Scott, Brandon and Tony targeted northern Kansas and found themselves in the Concordia and Belleville areas. Scott shot this interesting rain foot feature with a severe thunderstorm south of Concordia:

Meanwhile, Brandon captured this footage east of Belleville of a tornado-warned storm.

Last but certainly not least, here's Tony's account of the storms.

Unfortunately, Mikey and Ed were a little farther south and missed out on the daytime activity.

If you haven't already, you need to check out our new Storm Chaser Radar page! From the safety of your home computer, watch as the storm chasers pursue severe weather around the viewing area!
