I've spent my entire evening glued to my computer monitor in sheer horror and fascination. While I've always loved weather, especially the severe aspect of it, I still felt a horrible knot in my stomach while watching a tornado form before my eyes and then flatten towns and trees as if they were made of paper.
I took some screen shots of the live feed as I watched it and thought I'd share them with you from the tornado's inception to death and damage after. Its chilling.
Be thankful for what you have, pray for those who face tragedies such as this, and be humbled by the amazing power of the weather.
