Another Chase Trip (5/1 - 5/2)

A special "spot" chase was done during the week of May 1, 2008 with a special trip that left Florida on the evening of April 29 and into Kansas City, Missouri to be in position for severe storms and tornadoes on May 1 (and possibly May 2). A tornado was intercepted in Warren County, Kansas on May 1!

The May 2 target proved to be too far from Kansas for any intercepts, so an alternate northern target was sought with smaller storms intercepted there. The remainder of the time (no storms) was spent in Chicago with a return to Florida on May 5 (back from Chicago instead of Kansas City).
