Birth of a Tornado | petrey geo 152 | Scoop.it
May 21, 2013—Two days before a tornado—with winds clocked at over 200 miles per hour—tore through suburban Oklahoma City on May 20, National Geographic explorer and storm researcher Tim Samaras captured this video of a tornado forming in south-central Kansas.
