A rare sideways tornado was captured on video as it spun off of a massive twister that roared through downtown Tuscaloosa, Ala., yesterday (April 27). Just how rare are these sideways spinners? "There's not even a settled-upon name for those," said Bob Henson, a meteorologist with the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo. In the video, horizontal, rope-like funnel clouds periodically twist off of the main funnel cloud. At 1:20 in the video, a large sideways funnel cloud forms in front of the twister.

Lord have mercy! Those poor, poor people. Utterly surreal. What on earth was the guy thinking to put himself at risk like that?
Prayers to those affected - Dear God...
