Multiple Supercell Intercepts in Western Oklahoma

GRANITE, OK – The May 8th chase was a three-pronged chase that started on an isolated supercell that fired northeast of Elk City. After that, I dropped south and west to get a glimpse of some gorgeous storms coming out of the Texas Panhandle on the dryline. After nearly being struck by lightning, I headed back east, before being forced to tiptoe between 3 supercells that exploded just west of I-44 in order to get home, as the hunters became the hunted.
