gallery: March 24, 2013

March 24, 2013: I was covering an event on this Sunday morning, and I anticipated a squall line that afternoon. I got on the road a little late to get in the exact position I wanted - near the indicated rotation in the line as it swept into east-central Florida. Why? The line was moving at some 55 mph. But I did get a look at its beautiful green color (hail was reported, but not at my location) and some video of the blast as it moved in. Despite tornado warnings, the National Weather Service found only straight-line wind damage in its survey. Share

I went out to meet a squall line racing across Florida on March 24, 2013, and got a quick shot through the windshield before it overtook me. This was in the vicinity of S.R. 528 and S.R. 520, west of Cocoa, Florida. Photo by Chris Kridler,,

At the boat ramp across from Lone Cabbage Fish Camp, I barely had time to shoot another photo of the incoming squall line before it hit me again. At least I got a little video. Photo by Chris Kridler,,
