Perry, Oklahoma HD tornado video

Even though I've got a ton of work to do, I couldn't resist watching and reviewing the HD video from Saturday. I didn't set up my video camera until halfway through tornado #2, since I was focusing on stills initially. The video shows we got at least one more tornado out of this storm, making a total of three for the day. A few minutes after the first two tornadoes, another funnel lowered and produced a brief spinup of dirt at the ground, lasting only a few seconds. A fourth funnel dropped a few minutes later, condensing close enough to the ground that I could probably call it tornado #4 (a funnel more than halfway down will almost always have damaging circulation on the ground, by definition a tornado). But since I can't confirm any visible ground circulation evidence on video, I won't count it for now. Maybe eventually I'll see video from someone else who was closer that will allow me to say yes or no.
