Tappen area resident Tom Miller got about as close as anyone would want to get to a tornado Wednesday night.

In the early evening., a landspout came within 50 yards of his house two miles south of Tappen.

In a series of photos Tom took, the tornado seems to cut across some land and trees and then appears to find and roughly follow the side of a narrow gravel road by his house.

In a short period of time, the landspout moves on.

A number of other people around the Tappen area also captured images of landspouts — you can view those photos here.
