Approaching Silverton, we see a ragged lowering on the storm to our southwest.
Tornado to the southwest of Silverton.
After the tornado passes Silverton it produces a very nice tornado that remains on the ground over open country for over 10 minutes.
The southern storm produces a very nice tornado as it crosses over the Caprock Canyon State Park. One of the best scenes was when the side was illuminated by the sun the tornado crossed the Red River and threw up a spray of red water.
The tornado ropes out as it exits the Caprock Canyon area.
This hard to see tornado, wrapped in rain, is what we believe was responsible for the overturned cars and semis along I-40 east of Groom. The tornado here is very near to I-40.
I think the engine was damaged when we slid into a ditch on a muddy road about 2 hours earlier. We had to get towed back to Oklahoma City.
