"A great storm was approaching!!!"
This great storm is almost over. Two more environments to go, the field and the final location. What you see here is Emma's storm. Emma forgets to look ahead to where she's going, so she gets swept up in a collection of tornadoes and taken to a place without pop-ups.
You ever listen to Russian music? I know it sounds like a random question, but I've been listening to it for the past couple hours. It's pretty awesome; you should try it out.
