If you've ever wondered what it would be like to ride out an F5 tornado, here is your chance.
A man videotaped his extreme experience with 18 or more other people as they sought refuge
in a Fastrip gas station Beer Cooler as the violent tornado ripped through Joplin MO,
and literally all around them!
These folks crammed into the cooler just seconds before the tornado hit!
Absolutly heart wrenching to hear the screams of those little kids . Before I watched the first vid I read your comment about how everyone
survived, But while watching it I couldnt help but keep saying to myself" please let everyone be okay!!" Thanks for posting. Once again glad
everyone was okay.
Yeah it's amazing all that damage and virtually nothing left intact, except a little tin box where a group of people huddled together. In my eye
that's just way too much coincidence to be just plain old luck.
Yes, the first part of the video is so dark and quiet, but it gets interesting very quick there.
Those poor kids, that part was hard to listen to, it made it much easier to know ahead of time
they all survived!
I hope they dont have nightmares - hopefully not since they were all fine in the end.
Where I live we get gale force winds now and then, most recent being Monday where there was some destruction and a life lost and I always wondered
what a tornado was like.
I sure as hell have found out now. Terrifying, absolutely terrifying. I started crying, not only out of compassion for the people in the cooler but
because I was actually scared. I then made my partner listen to it and his first words after listening was "No wonder the people in that part of the
US are portrayed as having such strong faith" and I agree.
They say there are no atheists in a foxhole, and that video seems to lend some credence to that.
I couldn't see much in the first video but after seeing all the destruction in the second, all I can say is "Wow." The whole area was demolished.
And to think stuff like this happens repeatedly every year. Imagine all the harrowing and tragic stories we haven't ever seen...
That is a miracle they survived that... Glad they are safe! The video got me scared now haha. I have a cell (tornado) 30 miles away getting ready to
hit. Also a huge line full of tornados hitting in the next 2 hours or so. It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have a 2 year old to protect, I'm
terrified of losing a hold of her. Stay safe everyone.
If God was on their side why would he have not stopped it sooner? Even if you believe in God then you still have to recognise that on earth he gives
us free willand therefore surviving an encounter like this is pure luck. God giving these people mercy or cutting them a break has nothing to do with
I dont understand that because surely if they believed that God was on their side then he wouldnt send such destruction their way at all? If they
believe in God surely they must be wondering what they did to deserve such an event?
Thank you! I do have a basement with a seating area set up for us with a box of supplies in case we are stuck down there (well, its actually for
doomsday but close enough lol) I still don't feel safe in it though.. That's a story you will never forget, glad you made it through
