This was in other part of the country, but fascinating to watch. A guys 7 security cams at home caught a tornado in action on his property 2 days ago.

Awesome power and devastation.

More amazing footage than anything I've seen from the Stormchasers.

Wow, intense but less than 1 minute from start to finish

The house@ 4:00 - looks like a fire started and the wind flashed it up pretty severely immediately?

I think the gutter contractor ought to get a commendation for the installation of the downspout in the first scene- it went horizontal but didn't come loose. ;)

Old post, but I don't know how I missed this.

Amazing power of nature.  Just took those trees down.  Leveled the garage.  Took those out building flying.
