“Multi-vortex tornado destroys barn, dances on pond! Alpine, SD Tornado June 18th, 2014. This tornado was a shape-shifter, as it frequently would change shapes as the rope out stage would begin. Unfortunately, it did hit one farm and killed a poor dog, but the people were okay. In the [above] video, I show where the tornado hits that farm.”Dick McGowan
