May 14, 2010 No Trees, Texas Tornado and Supercell

Had an interesting day this day as we targeted a boundary in southwest Texas from Odessa towards Carlsbad. By the time we arrived early afternoon, storms were already firing. A couple became quickly tornadic as they encountered the boundary. We were 5 minutes late to witness a nice cone as we got stuck in the core behind some semis. We did witness a brief tornado near No Trees, Texas, as well as an oil tank explosion from a CG strike. The storm became very electrified and had beautiful structure and colors.

Here is a Youtube video from this day:
