Payne, along with KFOR photojournalist Marc Dillard, chased the lead storm of the outbreak that produced a devastating F5 tornado (then, the only recorded F5 tornado to have hit any portion of the Oklahoma City metropolitan area) that set down near Amber and tracked into southern and eastern suburbs.
