May 25, 2016 Supercell and Tornado

I chased the supercell that developed near Bennington, KS and tracked to the east and southeast across northeast Kansas. I caught the supercell just as it was crossing highway 81 to the north of Salina, KS. Without great road options available to the east, retreated to the south to Salina and back east along Interstate 70. The storm started to produce a tornado just o the north of the small town of Niles, KS and this tornado continued for the next 90+ min ending just to the southeast of the town of Chapman, KS. The tornado has been rated an EF4.
