CHASE SUMMARY

Texas Storm Chasers’s David Reimer and Paige Burress documented at least two tornadoes between Seiling and Waynoka, Oklahoma on May 18, 2017. Neither of these tornadoes impacted structures or they would have likely produced major damage. The first tornado roped out as it approached Highway 281 about 8 miles north of Chester at 3:36 PM CT. A second tornado quickly developed and that one was on the ground for 20 minutes before lifting just southwest of Waynoka. Both tornadoes exhibited behavior that you would expect with strong (EF2+) tornadoes.

The map will display the approximate location of this chase (town). It should not be used for specific location information.
