I'm not sure why I'm posting this in fragile earth, because in this situation the earth isn't fragile, it's VENEGFUL!

A tornado hunter was following a tornado in Oklahoma yesterday, and from what I can tell, it changed direction and began to head toward him, catching him off guard. He turns around and drives away from it with literally seconds to spare.

At about 15 seconds there is a telephone pole that levitates in the air in front of him. He drives forward and underneath it while it's still levitating!

The movie keeps getting removed from youtube, so someone did a recording of a recording and uploaded it. I'm still looking for a better version.

Just looks like the wind picked it up. But that's just me.

Pretty sure it was still suspended mainly by powerlines still attached as mentioned above. Still after that a change of underwear may be in order.

Pause it at around 18 second mark. Looks just like a crucifix, it even has the "arms".
Maybe that's why it keeps getting deleted.

The Weather Channel played that video most of the day, still amazing, even if it is the 100th time I've seen it.

I was watching it live yesterday.

He was pretty frightned and focused. I watch the Weather Channel all of the time in severe weather.

These people have got some huge balls ad nerves of steel. I just got back from a friends house. We took refuge in her basement. One tornado missed us by about 8 miles. There is no way i am "chasing" a tornado.

I don't think anything is attached. Please point out the lines?

It is attached. Noticed how it bounces. You can kind of see the lines. They are entangled in it.

The lines are definitely attached, otherwise it would have just blown away.

Here are some pics from Memphis, they are cool, just not when viewing them live!

According to roguetechie, a telephone pole would pull the lines down with it.


ERGO, the pole is levitating. It's a levitating pole...

Those were smaller poles dave. And they could have been made from a different material.



You don't see lines in my picture.


Don't be a pole troll.

Well virtuoso it appears I am wrong.... I knew it could happen that they would not come down, but it looks like they do it often... I saw a couple drop in storms by my house and they both came down after snapping their wires but those seem to be hanging just fine.

Rogue, you can clearly tell that the bottom shaft of it is thicker, but broken off in that pic that dave posted.

The pole in my picture is longer, and is also heavier.

Did you measure it?

Did you weigh it?

huh? huh? Just a thought - what if the crap in the air is making it hard to see? Also, does it look like all the other poles are missing something?

That is incredible - S&F! I wonder why they kept removing it from youtube? Maybe someone sold the footage to the news station as an exclusive?
