Shot in Wyoming and South Dakota by photographer Nicolaus Wegner in the summer of 2013, this video for National Geographic is an incredible look into the thunderstorms and mesocyclones — powerful vortexes of air within thunderstorms, creating a supercell — that roll across the northern Great Plains.
