Side anvil showing signs of becoming severe - a severe thunderstorm warning followed.

Storms this afternoon developed on the mountains as temperatures reached the threshold to break the cap early. With moisture in place, cells developed near Katoomba and Bilpin. The Bilpin cell was able to survive the longer riding on a boundary. It became severe for 30 to 40 minutes and then collapsed rapidly!

El Reno Supercell 31st May 2013 Revisited

Ok it's not hard to recognise this event - El Reno 2013. Just accidentally run the video and noticed a lightning bolt after someone reported from memory and the audio as well that there was a tornado at the time - ie the firs tornado from the El Reno event.
Anyone know where exactly it was. The lightning illuminates the base quite well . It seems there is a wall cloud in the region. Was the first tornado multi-vortex in nature and therefore not as clearly visible as a full condensation funnel?screenshot-from-2016-11-25-20-11-43 screenshot-from-2016-11-25-20-12-51 screenshot-from-2016-11-25-20-13-49 screenshot-from-2016-11-25-20-14-13
