Severe storms have been sweeping across eastern New Mexico Thursday night into this evening. A tornado touched down near Encino today and severe storm warning bringing damaging winds, hail and possibly more tornadoes, is in effect through 10 p.m.
Storm chasers and weather watchers have been taking video and pictures of the storms and sharing them on their Twitter feeds. Take a look:

LIGHTNING ILLUMINATES ‘MOTHERSHIP’ ⚡
Storm chaser Chad Casey was there with a front-row seat to the show.
His cameras were rolling as multiple bolts illuminated the “insane mothership supercell” as he called it in New Mexico on Thursday. #NMwx pic.twitter.com/eww0ffJPeu

Wild, wild stuff out there tonight. Looks like a thermonuclear detonation in the mid-level updraft column there. This is not CGI, just a bunch of moist air on the move. #NMwx #supercell pic.twitter.com/PEhNkAZNhP

Some storms just can’t be characterized by a photo. But we try anyway.
