Grain silo
Dodge City
Old Grain silo, I assume Entrance to Dodge City. Kansas
Larverne Supercell
Explosive supercell  near Woodward, Oklahoma
I track the supercell NE, it is tornado warned and the wall cloud is rotating madly, yet it fails to produce a tornado......
Large hail
HP Supercell does however produce large hail
I leave the first storm behind and head south to intercept this large HP ( High Precipitation ) Supercell. The cloud feature you can see along the bottom is an inflow band - warm moist air been sucked rapidly into the storm
HP Supercell Wall Cloud
Massive HP supercell - this storm dumped 4-6ins of hail and rain and may have contained a large wedge tornado  - unconfirmed, but reports Close up of Wall Cloud region
