UNL Undergraduate Meteorology major, Jon Garner,
took the following photographs on a tornado chase in southwest Nebraska
on Saturday, June 26, 1999.

Circulation has begun in the lowering wall cloud of this supercell located 
near Mc Cook, NE. 

A funnel formed and began to lower to the ground.  Although condensation had not yet filled the funnel cloud, circulating debris could be seen beneath the funnel at the ground. 

Looking off to the right at the ground, a debris cloud of dust can be seen. Repeated rainfall had occurred in this region for several weeks limiting the amount of dust being picked up by the tornado.
