THAT’S, UH, THAT IS A POWERFUL, POWERFUL TORNADO. WHERE AM I AT? I’M JUST WEST OF CUSTER CITY. CUSTER CITY, PLEASE TAKE YOUR IMMEDIATE TORNADO PRECAUTIONS. UH, DAMON, THIS IS GOING TO MOVE DIRECTLY TOWARD CUSTER CITY. UM, PERHAPS UP TOWARD THOMAS, BUT DEFINITELY IN CUSTER CITY. WE ARE GETTING READY TO GO THROUGH TOWN RIGHT NOW, BUT UNFORTUNATELY, THE TORNADO MAY GO THROUGH CUSTER CITY AS WELL. I CANNOT STRESS THIS LOUD ENOUGH.

AND THAT’S PART OF THE PROBLEM. LIKE I AGREE, SHANE, I’M SEEING VORTICES FROM TIME TO TIME, BUT THE WALL CLOUD IS SO LOW THAT THERE’S PROBABLY DAMAGING TORNADIC WINDS ALL AROUND IT UNDERNEATH IT. YEAH. AND SO YEAH, WE’RE WE’RE ON THE OUTSIDE EDGES OF IT. THE WIND PROBABLY HIT UP ABOUT 90 MILE AN HOUR. SO, UH, IT IS WOW. WHAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY SEE AS FAR AS THE, UH, AS FAR AS CON STATION GOES, YOU GOT TO KEEP IN MIND THAT’S ONLY CONDENSATION. THE WIND REACHES WAY OUT SOMETIMES. AND SO THAT’S INCREDIBLE.
