Chase Log

May 31, 2010 Southeast Colorado Tornadofest!

What an amazing day! We started in Amarillo and noticed a nice pinch point where the winds turned from south to east just north of the Raton Mesa in Baca county. We blasted north to find a magnificent supercell. It produced 5 tornadoes that we could confirm, and possibly 2 others. Two of the tornadoes were on the ground for over 20 minutes.  It traveled only 40 miles in its 10 hour lifcycle! It formed just after noon and was still warned at 10 PM that evening.

Here is the first video from the Pritchett tornado. The Campo tornado video is below.
