16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Transition from tornado to rainbow
On June 17th 2017 an EF1 and EF2 tornado touched down outside of Omaha Nebraska with strong winds upward to 135 mph and hail larger than golf balls. I took this photo shortly after the storm passed over our house, and there appeared a rainbow as if it were a sign that everything would be okay. Luckily we were spared and only had hail damage, but soon after it passed over our house it further developed into a tornado that would knock out power to approx. 76,000 people and luckily no serious injuries occurred.
