June 17th, 2023 storm

 Why so quiet?

It's been so dry.  

Then about mid-June started to have moisture returning with occasional storms.

June 17th, had a rare possibility for a severe weather day:

Not too much happened until late night.  A stationary storm blew up south of Newton, Kansas and just stayed in place as a rather large squall came in from the west.

I was outside and videoed a large wall cloud just to the north of my house.  

The video captures are below.  The storm was tornado warned by radar, by the time I got into position the squall line was near and the area was filling in with clouds, making the supercell hard to see in the dark.  There was no survey I could find in the records on what this was.

Straight-line wind damage was later reported.
