Storm chasers tracked severe weather on Wednesday and gave us the view through the windshield.
The first tornado report came in just before 6:30 p.m. in Maud, Oklahoma. The tornado then plowed through Seminole, Oklahoma – the second tornado the town saw this week.
A television station's storm chasing helicopter flew over the remains of homes after the tornado passed through. The Seminole Fire Department reported six miles of damage before the tornado lifted and then briefly touched down again.
The chopper caught the Wednesday storm accompanied by impressive lightning.
The National Weather Service issued another Tornado Warning for Seminole County until 8:45 the same evening.
Atmospheric conditions were near perfect for tornadoes in Crowell, Texas. Storm chasers gathered to shoot the storms.
A different view of the Crowell, Texas tornado by chaser, Sean Waugh, was about three miles south of the town.
"Isn't that wild? There's the inflow, hear it?" Asks Waugh. "I've never heard it before."
Storm Chaser Brad Arnold gets a little too close to the Crowell tornado. The twister is rain wrapped, making the funnel difficult to see and dangerous for Arnold.
A large tornado hit Lockett, Texas in Wilbarger County. Storm Chaser Mark Dees has a view from the ground of the massive complex only visible when lightning flashes.
The same tornado damaged a storm chasing tour van.
"Everyone is fine. The tour was shaken up and excited all at once," said Charles Edwards, owner of Cloud 9 Tours. "Other storm chasers stopped to help."
Tornado-blown metal debris in Lockett, Texas blew out the passenger side window closest to Edwards. More bombarded the side of the van. Edwards said he is fine but his right arm was cut up and painful. He also has bruising on his face.
