CodyDunkleWX Nearly 72 hours and well over 2000 miles later, I can admit that I had no idea what to expect with a second season chase in Oklahoma. I’m so glad I went. Met some awesome people, visited a long time friend from home, and intercepted a few tornadoes.
mikayla smith ☈ Oklahoma has seen tornadoes, large hail and damaging winds over the last several days. We can finally say goodbye and good riddance to severe weather, but we did get some nice, much needed soaking rainfall to help us combat the drought!
