    Impressive footage. I really feel sorry for the people that were hit.

    I'd like to see some of the dash footage from the on-the-job guys who had to go around during all that getting people under cover.

    Wish morons wannabe chasers would learn to keep the danged pan on that camera all the way back unless it is mounted and still.

    Still a good end footage of immediate wreckage

    I think anyone not being a professional of some sort should just stay away.
    Anyone who wants to help join our FD, Red Cross or a church group.

    Do chasers make the situation better or worse?

    Even if nothing happens to them, they are still potentially in the way.
    When something happens to them, then they use emergency services which are needed elsewhere.

    Those guys are total idiots. Neither one of them seems to have any knowledge or respect for meteorology, videography, or the power of that storm, they're just out looking for some Youtube footage I guess (first 5-6 minutes are pretty lame FWIW). They easily could have become victims themselves.

    I gave up watching after several minutes. Not even worth waiting for whatever followed.

    But thanks for the effort, ULVER!

    It's been a long time since I have seen one very close. The closest I have been is underneath one as it raised up above my group of people who I was taking shelter with. They clearly didn't know what they were doing.
