Default Tornado's @ Clayton

Lady I work with took these
This one is taken from a Mexican restaurant in Texline (10 miles from me)

This is the same one, I think taken between Texline and Clayton.

Supposedly several touched down around the town but I have no pics/absolute proof.
This happened tonight 23rd May, 2010. Was a mad nite all round with storms. Glad its almost over.

"Thirteen tornadoes raked Colorado, New Mexico, West Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and southwestern Nebraska Sunday. In Clayton, N.M., winds picked up a cow and deposited it in a roadway with a broken leg," from Tornadoes rake northern Plains - UPI.com no more Clayon info in that report.

This picture is from UNM Research Center a couple of miles south of town.


So a bunch of Tornado's touched down.
Drove around and saw a big semi truck flipped over, barns torn down, sides torn off.
No damage in the City Limits.
Heard of one dude hitting a trailer house in the middle of the road.

No damage to the prison at all. They did get a good view as it was fairly close.
