In case you haven’t watched cable news the past few days, you may have missed this amazing video taken from inside a tornado.

 

 

The Huffington Post provides some details:

In an intense, fascinating video clip, professional storm chasers Brandon Ivey and Sean Casey take viewers inside a wedge tornado in Smith County, Kan., on Monday evening.

The pair, who appear in the Discovery Channel series “Storm Chasers,” captured the footage from the inside of their “tornado intercept vehicle,” a heavy-duty vehicle outfitted with sensors and cameras, the video’s YouTube description explains.

According to their measurements, the tornado’s winds were in excess of 150 miles per hour — at least, that’s what the duo recorded before the storm ripped the instruments from their vehicle.
