Here is are two satellite grabs from 2015z.

I'm posting this publically rather than via PM since this functions as a nice reminder...

This Tornado Caused a Pot Grower to be arrested!

Did you know that this tornado ripped a roof of a 41 year old mans home, exposing his bedroom, and a hydroponics lab of pot plants?

Yup, he was arrested for growing marijuana with at least $8,000 of plants when police were assessing the damage to his home. The man was not home at the time, but police arrested him when he returned, after dealing with damage to his home too!

Bad luck really got worse, and a drug thug was "turned in by God" to authorities thanks to wind-shear, the jet stream, and moisture convergence!

Read more about it below...
