We were about an hour out of Omaha when we saw a huge cloud formation. As we drove further into it, the color of the sky turned a weird green color. We arrived in Omaha just in time to hear the air raid sirens go off. We were getting reports on the emergency radio of the boyscout camp getting hit by a tornado. The whole situation was a bit surreal, but I had never experienced anything like that before, so I was intrigued.
Then the shit hit the fan. The alarms in the hotel started going off, and we had to go file into the downstairs hallway with the other guests. Each of the circles on the Doppler indicate a tornado. Keep in mind that there should still be some daylight. We were watching people do live outdoor broadcasts where it was still sunny.
