Large Tornado Chase Recap In Iowa – 4/12/22

A large tornado touched down in Iowa on 4/12/22 along a warm front. It tracked through open fields for the most part. Unfortunately a couple homes were damaged. Luckily everyone was ok.
This was my first chase hosting private tours this year. Chris waited his entire life to witness a tornado in person. It was an incredible experience to help fulfill his dreams, and find a classic tornado in the fields of Iowa. In fact, we witnessed another small tornado the day before in Arkansas.
Not only did this storm produce a wild tornado, but it had beautiful supercell structure and an incredible lightning show. Oh yeah, also baseball sized hail! I may or may not need a new windshield.
