Fine shot and an unusually good opportunity to capture such a powerful, well established tornado. What direction were you looking at the time?

I looked at the video and that is so scary. It's been a remarkable April. Reminds me of one we had back in the 70's I think it was. The year the big one went through Xenia, OH. I'm not sure how to spell that name.

What a powerful and sobering image. Tornadoes are so destructive and potentially deadly and my heart and prayers go out to the victims of the tornado outbreak on April 15th. Terrific capture of this force of nature. The videos were so interesting too.
