Colorado Tornado Outbreak - 22 April 2010

I was fortunate to observe ~13 tornadoes across eastern Colorado, generally along a SW-NE corridor from the John Martin Reservoir to Eads to Cheyenne Wells. The majority of these tornadoes were from separate occluding areas of rotation. All but one of the tornadoes appeared to have remained over open country, with one tornado striking a barn (rated EF1). Cloud bases were extremely low, making for a continuous challenge to stay in close range for photogenic purposes.
