Distant Rope Tornado

Distant Rope Tornado

We continued to follow the storm eastward, and, again to our surprise, it produced this rope tornado well to our northeast (it's in between the trees near the center of the image). The only tornado reported in the area at this time was near Danville, IL, so it must have been that. Taken May 1, 2012.
