4/25/2011 Itasca, TX Rope Tornado

The severe storms continued on Monday with a deadly line of storms that formed tornadoes from central Arkansas, through Oklahoma to just south of Dallas, TX where BNVN Weather Paparazzi Tony Laubach was able to catch up with this rope tornado near Itasca, Texas.

In the video that Tony shot it starts out with a close up shot of the circulation on the ground in a field about a quarter mile away from him and then shows a wide shot of a bright white tornado hanging down from the clouds as the rain curtains fall behind the tornado. Tony has several different shots of the tornado from his dash camera and his chase partner, Ed Grubb’s camera.

The video ends as they are looking up to watch the rotation in the clouds above them after the tornado dissipated.
