Water Not Still

The team left Ponca City for a high risk opportunity in central OK.  The supercells became a bit messy as their cold pools began to merge.  The team then jumped east and intercepted a tornadic supercell just south of Stillwater, OK.  The circulation was wrapped in rain so we carefully positioned ourselves south hoping for a glance.  We were rewarded with a couple of quick looks at the tornado.  We then poked into the damage path to our north (mostly tree, billboard, power pole, and out-building (likely high end EF0 or low EF1 from what we could see)).
