Post-Tornadic Moore, OK, Storm
I was at an out-of-town wedding on May 18, 2013, so our first field course did not depart Champaign-Urbana until the morning of May 20. We left as early as possible (6am), targeting Oklahoma City, but the atmosphere waits for no one. Tragedy struck as we were leaving Tulsa, as the EF-5 Moore, OK, tornado devastated major swaths of that city. Here is that same storm, much weaker, photographed north of Prague, OK. A wall cloud is visible on the right. Don't think I would have wanted to see that much devastation occur anyway.
