Default June 30/09 Landspout and another funnel near London

A chase five days after seeing an F2 Landspout in Avon resulted in a cold core funnel that lasted 30 min visually coming to the ground twice and another funnel after the first one died.

I arrive and a huge line of clouds is feeding into the west side of a storm existing on a massive rotating cold low over southwestern Ontario.

As i was driving up to take a shot of the funnel it drops to the ground



To the right of this image a huge flank is feeding into this cell



Believe or not this land spout at this point had multi-vortice properties



It lifts but the funnel continues, I drive closer and when I stop to take pics it takes a nice cone shape rotating tightly





I start driving again to get closer as it had a steady path and it came down again!



Very odd storm with structure as funnel starts sucking off the ground again about 25 min after first time.













The base in the last shot had some rotating scud sucking off the ground connect with the base briefly



I drive closer to the original funnel that is still going





As that one dies I look to my west and see a big funnel roping out to the right of the house. Bigger than it looks here!



I drive up to that cell and come to a rotating doughnut base with strong rotation and up motion
