Monster northern Texas supercells, gorilla hail, and tornadoes

New video from North Texas tornadic supercells on April 26, 2015, including the stovepipe tornado near Rio Vista, TX by TVNweather!

Storm chasers were all over these storms providing life-saving reports until the tornado threat passed after midnight. At least 4 tornadoes were confirmed south and southwest of DFW.

While racing south to beat a tornado, TVN storm chasers Courtney Knight and Mike Scantlin encounter a roadblock, intense south-westerly winds on the East side of a "confirmed large and dangerous tornado", and 20 minutes of hurricane-force sustained winds! As the chasers wait out the storm at Big B's Truck Stop in Itasca, TX, a huge swath of extreme straight-line winds batters them for 20+ minutes as the slow-moving supercell propagated East.
