June 23rd, 2002 South Dakota Tornado Photos of Gene Olson

The photos contained on this page belong to Gene and Carrie Olson of the Barnard, South Dakota area. They are used with their gracious permission. These photos were taken on June 23rd during the Brown county South Dakota cyclic tornadic supercell. The large tornado heading for their farmstead fortunately dissipated just prior to a collision course with their farmstead. In one up close photo (4th from the bottom) you can even see yours truly in a white van heading away from the ever encroaching tornado. Another tornado, that went on to become an F4, is seen developing just east of their farmstead in the last 3 photos.
