Guy Nearly Gets Swept Up By A Tornado While Capturing This Terrifying Footage

The entire time I am watching this video, I’m screaming (in my head), “Run for your life!” Sam S. was filming a monstrous tornado that hit Rochelle, Illinois Friday April 10, 2015. The close up footage is absolutely incredible to watch. While you may want to judge him for not running away, it’s risk takers like this who make it possible for those of us to watch nature in action.

I would have been screaming for dear life in the back seat, honestly. Sam S. is one brave dude. The national weather service rated the tornado an EF-4—the second most powerful category, with winds reaching anywhere between 166 and 200 mph. Check it out and leave a comment below.
