Sean Casey and the Tornado Intercept Vehicle 2 sits alongside a road near Salina, Kansas, June 3, 2009, during "Tornado Intercept Practice". In the distance, the "van-nado" (practice tornado) can be seen approaching down the road...The practice simulates the deployement of vehicles and instruments near a tornado; the part of the tornado is played by this pickup truck that steadily moves towards the participants at around 20 miles per hour. ..Funded by the National Science Foundation and NOAA, Project Vortex 2 is a two year mission to study tornadoes and supercell thunderstorms. .
