Description: Incredible tornadoes, lightning, supercell storms and salamanders during the 2016 storm season in UHD 4K. In over two decades of storm chasing, I never dreamed I’d ever see a year like this.

Though producing well below average tornadoes for the month, April well over compensated with spectacular lightning storms. May 7, 2016 - Eckley and Wray Colorado tornadoes Three gorgeous tornadoes touched down and were highly visible from miles away. May 9, 2016 - Katie / Wynnwood & Sulphur Oklahoma tornadoes 34 tornadoes were reported, including one of the two strongest rated tornadoes of the year. The Katie / Wynnewood EF4 was responsible for one death, and the destruction of several homes. Along with extensive ground scouring and severe tree damage, some vehicles were thrown and mangled beyond recognition. The second tornado from this storm grew to over a mile wide and touched down near Sulphur Oklahoma. Unanchored homes, mobile homes and outbuildings were leveled or completely swept away.  A large metal storage garage would be swept away and the vehicles inside it thrown up to 280 yards. (over 250 meters)  A young man who was taking shelter in his home's most interior room had his entire house around him violently demolished. Only the two walls and toilet he was clinging to would remain. He would walk away without a scratch.  May 16, 2016 - Felt Oklahoma Tornadoes I witnessed two tornadoes on this day. One emerged from a wall of rain and roped out. The other tornado was a nub funnel cloud and brief spin up. May 21, 2016 - Leoti Kansas Tornadoes and Supercell Early forecasts on May 21st suggested tornadoes were unlikely however three small tornadoes would touch down, but the show stopper was the incredible mesocyclone structure and continuous garage of cloud to ground lightning strikes. May 22, 2016 - Canadian River Valley Tornadoes A few tornadoes touched down near the Canadian River valley, however I was late on the scene and only caught the end of the last tornado. May 23, 2016 - Turkey Texas tornado After the sun set, a large wedge tornado was revealed with occasional lightning strikes and power flashes. For the second day in a row, i missed the show by only moments. May 24, 2016 - Dodge City Tornado Outbreak A dozen incredibly photogenic tornadoes moved slowly over good road networks. Though some damage occurred to several homes, there were zero fatalities reported. The audio of the tornado sirens in this video was bot eerie and beautiful. Two different tornado sirens harmonized through the streets as tornadoes just passed to the west, missing the more populated areas. May 25, 2016 - Abilene / Chapman Tornado This EF4 was the other highest rated tornado of 2016. It completely swept away a split-level home and bent railroad tracks horizontally. Numerous vehicles including a Freightliner truck and a combine harvester were tossed and mangled beyond recognition. Despite being on the ground for 90 minutes, No fatalities were reported. Music Composed and performed by Pecos Hank Schyma and Dan Workman.
