Yeah I agree Michael! Incredible rotation.  Some of those pics in the stormtrack thread are impressive too, love the ambient lighting in a few.

Video from Saturday's tornadoes in Minnesota!

This storm chasing season is likely to go down as the best ever for a large  number of chasers. 2010 has been unusual not only in terms of actual numbers of  tornadoes, but also in the variety of extremely photogenic storms. Saturday was  no exception, as those who were around the Fergus Falls area of western  Minnesota can confirm. Bill Doms was among the chasers there, and he shot this  fantastic, high-contrast video of multiple tornadoes Saturday evening. Unfortunately this tornado  went through a farmstead causing severe damage, but thankfully there were no  injuries. Bill offers his apologies for not being able to stream this  event, but his data service was very poor in that area, making  streaming an impossibility. Eric Whitehill did have good data, and his live  stream did capture the action in real-time, which sent Reed into a near panic  attack as he watched from his bedroom in Norman. Reed has been literally working  day and night putting the finishing touches on his dissertation, so he has had  to miss a lot of chases since mid-June. That hasn't been easy on him! - The next  few days hold chase potential for the central and northern Plains as well, so  if any of you happen to catch a chaser streaming an amazing tornado on the Live page, don't tell Reed!!

Amazing tornado from western Minnesota!
