The storm was tornado-warned for more than one hour, but stayed an LP [low precipitation] storm through all its cycles and never produced a tornado, just occasional brief funnels, large hail, and some rain.” –Marko Korošec Marko Korošec / National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest / Via travel.nationalgeographic.com
