SMITH CENTER, Kansas — The National Weather Service received reports of 16 possible tornadoes in Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming and Colorado on Monday.
One of the twisters in Smith County, in far north-central Kansas, was caught on camera.
A couple of storm chasers recorded the video Monday afternoon.
Brandon Ivey and Sean Casey were in a specialized tank-like vehicle called a Tornado Intercept Vehicle.
They say the winds were blowing between 150 and 175 miles an hour.
That was strong enough to blow open a hatch, blow open a door and rip instruments off the top of the vehicle.
But it did stay on the ground.
