14 May 2016: Oklahoma scenery and 'Twister' event in Wakita
May 14, 2016: This was a down day for chasing storms, so a great day to attend the event in Wakita, Oklahoma, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the movie "Twister." In the film, the town is destroyed by a tornado. During this event, storm chasers drove through town in an impromptu parade.
