Tornado Video

This tornado video is from last Thursday, June 17.  I shot this at the entrance of the Grand Forks Airport, just off of Highway 2, at about 5:00 in the afternoon.  It is the first time in my television career that I’ve witnessed first-hand a tornado.  I know the word surreal gets thrown around a lot, but it’s the only appropiate word.  I didn’t have time to be frightened because I didn’t think it was quite real.  The twister eventually touches down just north of the airport in an open field.  Shortly thereafter, it dissipates.  I then chased its remains to Oslo, MN, but I think I scared it away.

  1. Couldn’t you have asked the moron with the cell phone to get OUT of the shot??????

  2. Nice video. Love the guy with the cell phone. He looks like he knows what he’s doing.

  3. Did the people actually going to the airport think that there flight was going to be on time?
