The Mapleton Monster by FramedByNature The Mapleton Monster by FramedByNature
:star: Witness the power of nature...:star:


Here's a previously-unprocessed image from a chase last year near Mapleton, IA. This storm was a cyclical supercell, producing multiple tornadoes over the span of several hours. We dropped the storm at this point, but shortly after it went on to produce twin tornadoes. Bummed we didn't catch that, but still grateful for what we saw! :nod: Here's a 3-image panorama of the storm just before we left it. Note the inflow on the left, smooth rounded meso below, and "crunchy" convection above. A scene I'll never forget! :w00t:
Chasing in south-central Kansas tomorrow, let's hope we can find a scene at least as cool as this! =D
This also reminds me, I should re-work these images and get an account up on my site soon :P

I remember that tornado, I got to see first hand the amount of destruction they can cause. It's crazy since I drive through there if I go north. Makes me glad that I chose the major I did.
