This scene encapsulates the irony of the supercell. For all of its striking beauty, it continually threatens grave consequences for those in its path: lightning (including lightning-started fires), severe wind, giant hail, and sometimes tornadoes. This storm ultimately would produce all of the above, causing damage and some injuries but fortunately no fatalities. Conscientious storm observers want no human harm, hoping against destruction while tracking and documenting the storm, and while also realizing their own own smallness in its presence and lack of control over its power.
