While this current storm was out in Oklahoma, where it did severe damage and killed several people, a team of storm chasers captured it on a video featured in the Washington Post, also posted here on YouTube. (Note: This is NOT the photo at the left; I don't have access to photos of the recent tornados, only the video referenced.) Most tornadic systems span one, or occasionally two, funnel clouds that touch down, but this one had two prominent ones, and hints of a third and fourth, starting about 1 minute into the video. This is a huge storm, with the spawning cloud being wider than the vertical distance between the ground and the base of the cloud.
