Hurricane "Arthur" NC Chase (7/4)

Hurricane "Arthur" was the first named storm of the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season. The storm was intercepted in North Carolina from the Morehead City / Atlantic Beach area late on July 3 then again before dawn on the outer banks south of Nags Head, NC. The storm was a category 2 hurricane with winds of 100 MPH. This was also the first hurricane chase since 2012.

I now have a full chase log for this intercept, and it is available in the STORM CHASING section of my site (in the tropical cyclone section). You can jump right to the chase log via the link for it below.

A video of this hurricane chase is also available and can be viewed in the log for this chase, or you can jump right to it via the link.

Nebraska "Twin" Tornadoes (6/16)

The true and brutal "violence" of weather in the Central United States made its ugly mark on June 16, 2014 near Pilger, Nebraska with a series of multiple tornadoes (some violent). Please pray for all who were affected by this recent disaster. The image below shows two violent tornadoes close to one another, each of similar size and intensity, with lightning and a destroyed farmstead in the foreground.

A chase trip was done from June 13 to June 17, with chases in Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma, and most importantly, Nebraska. A full chase log for this trip can be viewed at the link for it below!
