We are south and west of wichita. And look at this. Imagine the power of flattened trees. And of course, we have pieces of a shredded barn that have traveled more than 100 yards from back there. This type of power, we watched it, as it headed right towards downtown wichita. Whoa. It's huge. Reporter: This storm chase started with a tornado, moving right towards downtown wichita. Get ready to go. Reporter: We race north to meet it. We're coming on wichita. We're about five miles south. And the storm structure is incredible. It's going to pass right over the city of wichita. Our crew catching the angry skies and chaos, around us, as we get pelted with golf ball-sized hail. The hail is wild. We're going to try to get north and to a safe place. That safe place was east of the tornado, which was wrapped in rain and dying. That is a storm that moved through wichita. We're going to find some damage and also try to chase. There's another storm just to the south that had a tornado warning on it right now. We're going to go straight back on. Reporter: We blast south and end up south of tulsa, the sirens blaring. It's no longer safe. This is our last storm. This is what's left of the storm that dropped a tornado in It was a long day, chasing the 28 reported tornadoes. And we'll be out doing it again today. And a reminder, sam, that storm chasers, especially those who are trained like myself, are necessary and very helpful. It's not just voyeurism. We're calling 911 the second we see a tornado. Therefore, all the officials have the information the second they need it.
