The production on this is excellent. Famous storm chaser Reed Timmer has uploaded a brand new video which offers both a drone and ground perspective of this past Friday’s Andover, Kansas EF-3 tornado.

The incredible footage in the above video was captured by numerous storm chasers including Timmer (names to be confirmed). You can read the description for the YouTube uploaded video below.  

“New compilation from the Andover, KS EF3 tornado intercept on April 30, 2022 including Dominator Drone and ground perspective. Audio has been softened for the faint of heart. Miraculously, no lives were lost from this tornado despite immense damage and nearly 1000 structures impacted. This shows how incredible the warning was for this storm. We called in the tornado in progress and the NWS [National Weather Service]  issued a tornado warning and sirens sounded. We hope that this drone footage can advance our understanding of the tornado relationship with the ground and the influence of friction.”
