Storm Chasers Video Tornado from the Inside as it Hits Vehicle
This is crazy video from a couple of storm chasers who were inside their vehicle as a tornado actually moves right over the top of them! What could be a scene straight out of the movie “Twister” the two kept the video rolling so we could all experience the force of mother nature.
Brandon Ivey and Sean Casey chased the storm in Smith Center, Kansas yesterday (5/27/13) in a specially designed tornado intercept vehicle. It’s an 8-ton vehicle that looks much like a tank, so that’s why the tornado didn’t just destroy it! The winds reached 150 to 175mph before ripping some of the instruments off the top of the vehicle.
These guys are crazy — no doubt about that, but I’m glad they came out safe and were able to share this video with the world.
