Karratha Tornado

I think this shot shows the actual size of the tornado the best. You can just see the town of karratha left from the middle the small white dots, just before the tornado hit.

  1. That storm is bloody nuts!!!
    cool shot, you should send it in to the local newspaper!

  2. Very spectacular storm image Ben ! Awesome in fact !

    ‘Unfortunately’ this thunderstorm does not appear to generate a tornado in these images though. What we are looking at instead, appears to be some very beautiful outflow features and associated gustfront.
