Fredrick Muscat - Photographer and Jimmy Deguara on last day of chasing and we lucked out on a close tornado and nice structured supercell in SE Nebraska

All I can say we almost did not chase today but last day of the trip for 2018, we gave it a go with a 7 hour drive. Arrived near Lincoln Nebraska had a coffee and watched as a large cumulus rapidly developed just to our east. After a close shave with hail we manoeuvred our way to the southern side.

I was astonished to see a wall cloud nearby. Finally in position, things ramped up rapidly. From wall cloud to rapid rotation then tornado siren then funnel cloud!. Someone reported a tornado on the river from this. We could not see this!

The storm maintained a couple of wall clouds and continued to threaten tornadoes. This occurred at least 2 or 3 times. The main large wall cloud maintained forโ€ฆ More

  1. Back in Australia after this last rush to Denver from Salina, finding a flight delay that would have missed my international connection so asked for and got an earlier one – lucky! Just landed after a bumpy ride.

    I would like to thank all the chasers I met including the Aussies and New Zealander contingents But also the other chasers who were nearby!

    I would like to thank my cousin for his help in navigation – for someone who has never chased local – (Malta is too small for chasing per se ) he quickly was on the ball. Yes there were a couple of harrowing moments but again this was due to lack of data for the maps. Great job cousin Fredrick. I had a ball. He got a landspout tornado and the Nebraska tornadoes a couple of days ago with me which is quite ideal to be able to get in 2018 within 10 days!

    It was tiring with me being the sole driver – I would love to have known what I have driven in my one month
