Awesome footage. Really captures the ... er , awesomeness. Growing up in Illinois, I saw a few monsters... closest one was heading towards us, decided
to jump up and missed our block, then returned to the ground a quarter mile away and tore up a forest preserve.
I remember being stupid with my brothers and vacating the basement to see it when it left the ground... our folks were gone that day. We watched the
funnel travel over us, and it had lightening and debris dancing around the walls... one of the coolest sights I've experienced... and nobody died that
My uncle was working at a convent in the 90's and had a nun by the hand, pulling her into the storm shelter as a twister approached, but the wind was
stronger and wrenched her up and away, killing her and depositing her body a couple miles away. Some poignant statement about religion might be
made... if one was religious.
Love tornados... because they are terrifying.
