Caption   A cone-shaped tornado roars across farmland north of Kinsley, Kansas. The EF4 tornado narrowly missed the town of Rozel, but caused damage to several farms. In this photograph, the tornado's parent supercell thunderstorm can be seen. Against the late-afternoon orange glow of the distant sky, the silhouetted tornado appears black. The transparent black cloud around the funnel's base is dust and debris lofted by the storm.
