Here at its closest approach to us, the slow-moving Bennington tornado emitted a blend of waterfall-like whooshing and a low-frequency roar heard clearly through wrapping rain. The condensed part of the tornado also assumed its widest “wedge” appearance. At lower left, a few geese join a bigger flock of humans behind the camera in admiring the big vortex rumbling through the western sky. We were prepared to leave the scene, but the rotating brute casually looped back to the NW, in its gradual, 45-minute crawl across just a few square miles of northern Kansas prairie.
