Camera Shows Mobile AL Business Being Hit By Wednesday Morning Tornado



I was watching WALA-TV10 live from Mobile on the Web yesterday morning when a viewer (?) called into the station and reported a tornado had touched down at a busy intersection in west Mobile.





Viewers also sent in several damage photos before the station's own photographers could get on the scene- showing damage at a BP gas station and a Food World grocery store.




Three persons suffered minor injuries.




Today- surveillance video from a hardware store/small engine repair shop located near the gas station and grocery store was released on YouTube.


Note the man seated and working on a riding lawnmower when the lights go out- and slo-mo of the video shows the man getting down and wrapping himself around the mower as the tornado hits the building.


The man wasn't hurt.
