In 2013, storm chasers Jimmy Deguara and Dave Croan were there to experience the up close and personal El-Reno tornado - now known as the widest tornado in history and packing measured winds in the EF-5 category - about 295 miles per hour! This tornado was so large it was almost in-describable - chasing away any chaser that dared to remain in its path! Dave and Jimmy were there at close range from its spectacular birth - a series of multi-vorticies and watched as this humungous beast disappeared to the north. Most importantly, our path of escape meant we minimised risk!
