The Swifters were on the tail of this Mother's Day tornado, rated as a EF3 tornado and was a true chasing experience for the team. The tornado was almost a half mile wide and had extremely strong rear flank down draft. The winds were up to 100mph and caused the team to see a flipped irrigation system, downed power lines, and a barn fly through the air. The storm was powerful and was a true meteorological experience for the Swift team.
