That's what I thought it was at first when a depty was asking about the "spining cloud over pawhuska" but Dispatch advised they phoned the NWS and they were tracking a rotating wall cloud that was lowering near Pawhuska. :lol: Shortly after the weather statement was released

"WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR AND STORM SPOTTERS
CONTINUED TO TRACK A DANGEROUS TORNADO."

I learned along time ago that cops aren't usually trustworthy tornado spotters ;)

Tornadoes can't be off the ground, otherwise they aren't tornadoes :)
