3/28/12 Americus KS Tornadic Storm
Jeff and Brian headed out on a last minute decision from Omaha at around 1:30. We arrived at Maryville, KS and waited for storms to develop. Storms did start just north of Emporia, KS but we held off to go down there, since we couldn’t commit to go to far south since Brian had to be at work back in Omaha that night. Soon we noticed more storm development to our south and blasted south of Manhattan, KS. We caught the storm near Council Grove, KS and it became tornado warned near Americus, KS. We saw numerous wall clouds and some crazy upflow and a few funnels. No tornadoes for us this day, but was a fun chase.
