Convective Addiction is pleased to announce…
June 17, 2010
Available on DVD and Blu-ray
On the afternoon of June 17, 2010 storms erupted across North Dakota and Minnesota spawning dozens of tornadoes and leaving a wake of destruction. Four of the tornadoes were rated EF4 on the Enhanced Fujita scale and resulted in three fatalities. It was the worst outbreak of violent tornadoes Minnesota had seen since 1967. This day also set a new record for the state for the most number of tornadoes in one day!
Follow along with four Convective Addiction storm chasers as they track a powerful supercell across southern Minnesota, capturing dramatic footage of multiple tornadoes, from multiple angles. Chapters include:
- Opening Funnels – The storm ramps up over northern Iowa producing several funnel clouds
- First Tornado – The first tornado touches down in southern Minnesota as a slender cone, quickly followed by two more
- Kiester Wedge – A large, wedge tornado forms inflicting EF2 damage near the town of Kiester, MN
- Dueling Tornadoes – The Kiester tornado dissipates as a brilliant, white cone tornado forms ahead of it
- White Stovepipe – A white, “stovepipe” tornado forms topped by layers of dramatic storm structure
- An EF4 Forms – A large cone tornado touches down that would be the start of a deadly EF4 tornado
- Conger Cone – Convective Addiction chasers converge on the town of Conger, MN as a huge, cone tornado looms
- Albert Lea Approach – The EF4 tornado widens into a wedge and passes dangerously close to Albert Lea, MN
- Dusk Tornadoes – A few more tornadoes, including the Hollandale, MN EF3 wedge are captured in the last minutes of light
- Timelapse Chase – Continuous shots of the chase, time lapsed at 16x speed and set to music
- Closing – The chase ends with ominous green skies and wailing sirens in Blooming Prairie, MN
