This is some of the best tornado footage you'll see. Like you're right there watching death approach. If you've ever had a Tornado dream, you know it's a lot like this video. Terrifying

everyone’s talking about how terrifying the sound of the tornado is, but I think what’s most chilling is the silence that follows its departure. if it weren’t for the mass debris and loss of life in front of you, it’s almost as if it never passed.

The most poised, self controlled, quiet man Ive ever heard in front of death.

Growing up in Tennessee we had many tornados 🌪 they sound terrifying. Almost like a runaway freight train. The debris being blow at you hitting your skin has a stinging sensation. The worst part about tornados for me was the pressure you feel as it approaches, almost like someone is squeezing your head. This footage is incredible.

I heard a roaring sound similar to about 1:15 once. At the time, I had no idea that a tornado was half a mile away from my house. It was rain wrapped and there were trees and houses covering my view so all I saw was a haze right right where the tornado was. While the tornado was significantly smaller than this, and I was lucky to not get hit, it was unsettling to learn that the sound I heard was the same sound that's preceded death for many.

The guy saw a tornado coming towards him but he didn't want to die
So he picked up a camera and started filming because cameramen never die

I love how chill he is even when there’s this giant rotating cloud of death approaching

I listened a second with headphones and could pick up the man's rapid breathing.. it was truly heartbreaking to think of how he was feeling in that moment.

The person recording this I give you tons of credit for capturing this and being calm. Seeing this as it may feel like death is staring at you.

I’ve lived in Missouri my whole life and we get tornado warnings every year, usually in the Spring and Summer. There’s been so many times that I had to get in the bathtub while my dad put a mattress over me and my mom. Tornadoes are awful, awful things and it sucks to have to deal with the possibility of them every year. That’s why I’ve never understood how people can find thunderstorms relaxing, because for me, thunderstorms = possible tornado.

Just a small fact about tornados: If a tornado doesn’t look like it’s moving, it’s heading straight toward you. Run and/or seek shelter.

This is fascinating to witness from a safe distance--I've long been fascinated by tornadoes having grown up in Illinois.

RIP to those who died in this. I can’t believe how loud these things are, they say it’s like a freight train next to your ear drums this close to it.

Well. That was not click bait. You delivered. I’ve always wanted to hear the “freight train” sound about which everyone speaks. Thanks so much for this brave video.

This is a great video for people like me who would love to film a tornado like this or watch it and to realize how careful you need to be. It looks so far away and like it's barely moving, then all the sudden it's coming right at them. Not sure how the video survived, but great warning for how tornadoes can be.

I remember always wanting a tornado to hit as a kid, hoping it would destroy my school so I could stay home. I regret those thoughts now as that is absolutely terrifying
