Intense, First-Person Video of Joplin Tornado

This is an intense, first-person video of the tornado that ripped through Joplin, MO on Sunday the 22nd of May. It is almost six minutes long. About four and a half minutes of it is the tornado hitting the convenience store that the people are in. The video is hard to see, but the audio tells plenty! I think the part that amazed me the most with this is that my parents experienced this exact tornado. In fact, the person that takes pictures for their insurance company said that of all the houses she had taken pictures of that day, my parents' house was the worst. Even so, they walked away with no broken bones.
