First Chase Aftermath

We had what we consider a productive chase day yesterday. It was a good chance to test out our equipment and try and work out some bugs. We had a few issues streaming our chase video from, but we eventually figured out our major issues. We appreciate the 200+ viewers we had watching us get pummeled by hail and thank you for sticking with us through technical difficulties.

We did get to see our very first rotation!!! It was small and short lived, but was only 150 yards ahead of us. We saw rotating dirt in the air. The accompanying wind caused some shingle damage to a house and blew apart a metal shed. You can see the aftermath in the accompanying pictures and video.

Here is the path we followed while we chased the line of storms. We started in Malcolm and headed west past Bradshaw. We then turned around and kept up with the storms east all the way South Bend where we were thwarted in our chase of the rotation by the Platte River.
