This week’s newsletter is focused on my storm chasing adventure to Oklahoma during this week in 2013. During that event, a powerful EF-5 tornado hit Moore, Oklahoma, which was several miles north of my location. That was the last documented EF-5 in our country. Find out about this and more at https://meteorologistmarkpro.com/!
