Tornado South Of Dora In Roosevelt County - 5-29-2015.





A line of Severe Thunderstorms formed over northeastern and eastern New Mexico late yesterday afternoon and marched southeastward. I shot this Tail End Charlie storm some 50 miles to my north as it was approaching Lovington, NM in Lea County. I was on Hwy 128 in Lea and Eddy Counties looking north. It had a nice overshooting top and was Severe Warned at the time.
