Nebraska State Trooper Clint Zost snapped this picture of his Dodge Charger Police Interceptor after reporting a tornado near Richardson County in May. The twister was an EF3 that lifted just a few hundred yards from the Nebraska-Kansas border.
Troopers like Zost are trained for severe weather situations. They often watch for rotation in the clouds during storms, and when they spot tornados, they contact dispatchers to sound sirens in the nearby communities.
