Impressive Tornadic Storm NC Oklahoma

Very impressive radar image taken from the Vance AFB radar (near Enid, OK) just a few moments ago.  The left side of the image shows reflectivity (i.e., rain, hail), while the right side shows wind motion.  Remember, greens on the wind motion image show wind blowing toward the radar site (which is located just off of the left side of the image), while reds show wind motion away from the radar site.

If you can't pick out the strong rotation with your naked eye, I have annotated it for you in the image below (yellow circle with arrows on the right hand side of the image):

A Tornado Warning is in effect for Grant County until 9:45 PM CDT.
