John Hallen, tracked the cyclic supercell tornado that hit Orrick, and indicated the storm kept cycling and produced tornadoes for many miles eastward. John said, "I filmed the tornado as it kept cycling. It would outflow, reform and kept producing tornadoes. Most of my footage shows tornadoes of varying strength through rain curtains."

There were a number of other tornadoes, including several in SE Kansas near Wichita. Colt Forney and Lauren Hill-Forney, Weather Adventures, documented that storm, as well. http://www.pinterest.com/basehunterscolt/

Tomorrow, May 11, 2014, is another day, and if models hold, could prove dangerous for areas of northeastern Nebraska, northeastern Kansas, and particularly in Iowa. Stay tuned to your weather radios, local media, and have emergency shelter plans in place, if you live in an area where a tornado warning has been issued.
