Conditionally dangerous yet ultimately harmless, the visible part of this vortex eased across the sinewy roll of the central Nebraska landscape for nearly 15 minutes, metamorphosing from tentative funnel to elephant-trunk form, to this classical shape, then a vaporous mimic of dental floss. The tornado behaved itself, avoided substantial structures and caused no casualties, serving only to relocate some small debris and grasshoppers, cause justifiable concern for a few local storm spotters, and pose for the film-camera lenses of at least two storm-seeking sojourners.
