May 22, 2010: Bowdle, South Dakota Tornadoes - Jonathan Merage

6:35pm
First view of the tornado at second approach. The now full-on maxi-wedge was a mile away and nearly stationary! This still frame shows the storm lifting in and rotating tons of dirt with a classic large wall cloud around its upper portions. A powerful (130mph+) inflow jet can be seen taking shape at the base of the wedge on the left hand side.
