Then back on the highway. The Storm Prediction Center called for the highest risk up north in Nebraska. There was also high risk down south. So, we decided to drive down the middle on I-70. We passed through the Flint Hills, which are gorgeous as always.
The tornado crossed over I-70 northeast of Salina, and did some damage to road construction signs and a junk yard. The tornado then reformed into a perfect cone as we watched it head away from us as night fell. The trip back home didn't seem very long at all. We made it to Topeka, which was under threat of another tornado producing cell. However, that dissipated just a few minutes southwest of Topeka. Later we watched on the radar as a tornado hit the south part of Wichita. Then later in the evening, unfortunately, a tornado hit Woodward Okalahoma with loss of life.
