Fun fact: most tornados travel between 30-50mph, with some approaching 70. You can almost always escape a tornado by car if you can see it, but I wouldn't try.

Those people were driving towards that tornado as if it was just another cloudy day.😳

*fun fact (srsly): if a tornado looks like it isn’t moving, then it’s actually coming straight for you and you need to get out of there or get somewhere safe.*

They say that the sound of a tornado is like a freight train full speed next to you. This monster here seemed rather quiet.. Uncomparable pictures - could watch in awe forever.

So nobody cares that there is a Tornado so close by? You’d think people be panicking and driving away from it as quick as possible.

I love how so many people just casually drove right past it on the highway.

Really awesome. A really "pretty" tornado. That thing was massive. I'm glad you went closer though.

Pretty gorgeous footage! It was cool to see such a clear transition in color as it picked up more dirt and dust.
