Oct 3rd non-condensed tornado on the ground from start to finish. Two updrafts before tornado developed. Pictures r in order from beginning to when it got close n then past me. The last 3 pics r the condensed funnel after it passed me. Then edited last 2 to add contrast cuz my phones camera blows. You can see in top left on dark cloud black specs all over n they go all the way across the pic. It was only 70yds away then n 60 yards wide at least. Specs are corn stalks getting ripped out of field and spinning up 150-200 ft in the air. At first I didn't know anything was on ground cuz they moved the tornado threat east of us. So it was unexpected. The wind n trees falling and debris rotating gave it away lol. 6:09pm Iowa, 87° Supercell developed ahead of major cold front. EF0-EF1 75-95mph winds give or take. Estimate by seeing, feeling the wind, and the damage it did taking large trees down and flattening corn. Crazy day at work. loved it.
