7/9/2011 Seibert, CO Severe storms

Severe storms move across Colorado for the fourth day in a row bringing more heavy rains, hail, and lightning to a state that’s been battered with torrential rains, hail, high winds, and lightning over the last several days.

Video features a long-track supercell storm that formed near Limon, Colorado and tracked nearly due east along I-70, eventually crossing in Kansas. This storm was still ongoing several hours after it developed, tracking almost 200 miles across two states.

Video package opens up with point of view driving shots of the storm’s structure as chasers approach it. Following shots from POV of several lightning strikes from the storm. Next shot of a disorganized funnel cloud. Following shots taken during the storm as hail up to 1.25" falls south of Seibert along CO-59. Last shots of hail compared with a Kennedy Half Dollar and a old U.S. Silver dollar (also includes stuffed toy in final shot).
