WEST TEXAS TORNADO AND A DOWNRIGHT WEIRD TORNADO

Date:  28 April 2016

  • Chaser: Paige Burress, David Reimer
  • Location: east of Turkey, TX

CHASE SUMMARY

Rapidly rotating funnel cloud touches down as a brief landspout tornado in open pasture at 5:50 PM about 5 miles southeast of Turkey, TX. Vegetation is lofted into the air as the funnel became a tornado. While it was a brief touchdown the tornado was surprising considering it was not in the typical location you would expect for a mesocyclonic circulation. Successful chase day!
