Tornado First Person Videos

The tornado that slammed Joplin, MO on May 22, like the others around the country recently, has resulted in stunning first-person video accounts. With the popularity of video capability on smartphones (not to mention digital cameras) we are now not only seeing the damage closer than ever, but we are also seeing what it’s like to wait for the storm, then experience it.

Below are some videos that show the intensity of the storms (during and after).
