Rare Anticyclonic Tornado in Oberlin, KS

Occurred on June 4, 2022 / Oberlin, Kansas, USA

Info from Licensor: "We had just hightailed it from Denver to intercept the storm just as it dropped over the border South into Kansas from Nebraska. We were paralleling the storm on the highway when all of a sudden the train of chasers all started pulling over. As I glanced to my East while heading south on the highway, we saw the dust collecting at the base of the tornado. I soon noticed the tornado was rotating counterclockwise or what's known as a rare anticyclonic tornado. Most tornadoes rotate counterclockwise in the northern hemisphere due to what is the Coriolis effect from the earth's rotation."
