Severe storm ingesting smoke near Nickerson, Kansas.

The storm was producing large hail and lightning, the latter of which caused a fire. The storm looked especially ominous because of the smoke getting sucked into the updraft of the supercell.

Shortly after, it developed a southwest moving tornado.
