How NOT To Look At A Tornado: Resident Video-Recording Alabama Tornado Nearly Killed
All the time there's talk of storm chasers getting too close to a tornado- but little is mentioned about residents in a tornado's path nearly getting killed videoing the twister.
Such is in this latest video find from The Great Tornado Outbreak of 2011 on April 27 that produced more than 300 tornadoes and killed more than that many.
This videographer- along with his brother-in-law- narrowly avoids becoming a tornado fatality while shooting the Cordova AL tornado coming right at his house.
The fast-moving twister is already across the street from him before the recording stops- on his YouTube page "jayf1295"- the videotaker tells how his house was destroyed as he and his brother-in-law were blown into the yard.
Nothing is mentioned about their injuries which were obviously not terminal.
