Video Footage of Deadly Tornados

Karrboy84 found these amazing tornado videos and I thought I would share.

This one is from a couple of guys that are not trained. They got way too close and thankfully one of them was smart enough to say “back the fuck up” and the driver threw it into reverse. The tornado crosses the interstate where they had been about 15 seconds later.

This is the recent May 22, 2011 Joplin Missouri tornado that was rated an EF 5.

The June 23, 2007 Manitobe tornado was the last recorded F5 tornado before the switch to the “EF” scale. This thing gets pretty incredible between 3:15 and 4:15. The Enhanced Fujita Scale rates the strength of a tornado and it is based on the damage they cause which is related to wind speed.
