Amazing video...came right up onto damaged area right after tornado passed through...
Sure is amazing. What’s great about it is that the one shooting managed to hold the camera steady throughout. Usually, these vids are shaking all over the place but not this one. Fantastic job to whoever did it.
Other than seeing Jesus Christ come back, this is one thing that would strike awe in me. The sheer unadulterated power in one of those beasts IS awe inspiring. Prayers for those touched by this beast.
Actually, that video was done by John Sibley, a stormchaser who had been following that storm all the way from Marion County, two counties to the West of H'burg! It had gone in almost a straight line, just South of Hwy 98, and started moving North and east after it crossed I-59. That's when you see it start moving toward Hardy St. (which is the street on which he's driving), and as it crosses the street, THAT is the moment it hits the USM campus. The winds on the edge of it damaged the Fine Arts Building, which is right across the street from Elam Arms, which is the two building complex on the right with all the windows blown out. That complex is an old dorm for USM, and it has been vacant for several years. This is what you see when he pulls to a stop where the light pole is across the road.
