If you have to pan the camera to capture the whole tornado then you are too close


unknownz_123

Nah. The tornado is too close. The tornado will move for me.


Strained_Eyes

Geez, what's he never heard of social distancing or something?


ProPainful

*He's doin that dumbshit no budge bullshit.*


ILLUMINAVENVEGA

So I says to the tornado, “seriously!?” It completely ignored me and just went through what was clearly my personal space. I just took the higher path and brushed it off, not worth fighting.


the_lone_peen

Your sentence structure is “dumbshit”


ProPainful

It's not my fault you cant read.


the_lone_peen

Yes it is.


ProPainful

Aren't you just sad. Go back to school.


the_lone_peen

Oof, sick burn dude


kerbidiah15

Pedestrians *DO* have the right of way…

NachosMahdude

But I appreciate the footage


lardoni

I always get pissed off at people cutting the video early! But In this case I can understand why they did!


DanAlucard

RUN BI*CH RUUUUUUUUUUUN


ThrowRARAw

the double take. the triple take. "huh that's kind cool OH FUCK"


Pinksunshine77477

Ikr, hell i panicked when i realized what i just saw LOL.


seth928

Fucking midwesterners, my people are insane.


IBitchSLAPYourASS

I mean ....what else is there to do in the Midwest?


AngryApparition029

Drink, storm watch, and go to church. I think in that order.


Jonah7777777

Also foot ball 🏈


ProCanadianbudeh

Guns too! 🔫


Shit_Weasle22

You forgot about growing and raising food for the coastal elites to eat while they babble incessantly about the importance of their lives and about how unrefined Midwesterners are.


guttertomars

Over 1/3 of the vegetables and 2/3 of the fruit and nuts in this country come from CA but keep thinking whatever you want. Not unrefined but ignorant isn’t out of the question.


Supanova1992

Oklahomans do nothing but smoke meth and drill for oil and cause earthquakes.


[deleted]

All this. And I don’t even live in the Midwest.


Florida_____Man

TIL California is in the Midwest


CoHenormus

It's in Pennsylvania too.


AngryApparition029

Lol had to zoom in because I thought that was a really shitty outline of the US.


AngryApparition029

How could I forget?!


thathyperactiveguy

As one, I’m honestly like, “you coulda held that shot longer, ya puss.”


too_rolling_stoned

Being from the panhandle of Oklahoma, I feel I’m qualified to say that filming something like this is not really very intelligent at all.


ReklessGamer07

Yeah this person, while filming something cool, is quite dumb.


shan68ok01

Smack dab middle of Oklahoma concurs! There's times for lawn chairs and beer and times for get yourself safe as you can! Idiots! We're fucking weaned on satellite images of storms and what to watch for regardless of the constant news coverage of possible tornadic storms! Fucking idiots!


ScienceMomCO

Probably not raised in tornado alley, otherwise he’d know.


Supanova1992

I sit on the roof and watch the cows fly like it's wizard of Oz.


Burzujuss

Tornadon't


Strodigity

Exactly how it happens in my nightmares


Hoofuhlicious

Yeah except times it by 5 or 10. You're lucky if you just get 1 tornado.


xXD0BIEXx

I always wondered if anyone else had this. Or trying to outrun them in an open field with a group of strangers. It’s always so real and intense.


Hoofuhlicious

Interesting indeed. Thoight it was only me lol


Strodigity

We’ve found each other friends :) For me I’m at the top of an incline field looking over a rural area, (with German cottage type structures dotting the landscape) as they start to form and the wind picks up…I turn to run and they begin forming much closer to me, all around and the chase is on!


xXD0BIEXx

Yeah, they just start dropping like it’s the day after tomorrow. I’m half in awe of tornadoes and half terrified. Idk why I watch these tornado videos right before I sleep, but there’s just something about them. I’m always looking up to the sky. Anyway, maybe we can all link up in our nightmares and take on Mother Nature as a team. Haha.


[deleted]

Tornado: “Pardon me. Just gotta reach over here for a second.”


jlpepper13

Tornados are typically in the Midwest so it's probably more like "Ope, let me just grab that real quick."


Hope_is_Everywhere

*Excuse me, is this the missing cow that you were looking for? Here, take her!*


[deleted]

That quote isn’t the best usage of the word. “Ope” is actually short for “oops”. Personally, I consider to have “ope” be spelled as “oop”. I could see the tornado saying what you said if it’s trying to passive aggressively budge pass someone though. lol


Leon_Trotsky_

Kansan here, the worst part about tornadoes is that the sound is not what you expect. Like you’re sitting in your basement waiting for the warning sirens to go off, nothing really sounds off, then you go back up and half your neighborhood is destroyed. Very strange.


Gandalf_The_Geigh

Been in 3 tornados, apparently they happen in Ontario Canada way more than you'd ever expect. Two in Ottawa and one in Sarnia. It's pretty terrifying actually.


Leon_Trotsky_

Damn! I did not know they happened that far north. Thanks for the knowledge!


moderateshadow

Yeah, not a often definitely but they happen https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edmonton_tornado


midasboobs

I witnessed one in New Brunswick about 15 years ago. I'm sure it was nothing compared to Kansas, but still wild to watch form and tear through our family's property


dmsayer

See, in my case I heard rumbling, accompanied by the sound of the wind screeching through the seals of the closed windows throughout the house. And the torrential rain/hail that would slap the house in big whooshing waves that got more frequent until the tornado was exiting my location, and they would drop in frequency the further away it got.


CursedAtBirth777

Maybe run


FaelinnCanada

Lol where????? That’s the kind of N’Ado that Dorothy says “SOB”.


edwardsflu

every dad is currently standing on their porches, staring at the sky😭


Caregiverrr

Omg my dad used to do that, drive my mom crazy. Once we went to a fireworks show at a high school football stadium and a piece of shrapnel went into the stack of fireworks. Eighty of them went off on the ground all at once. Mom, my brother, myself and lots of other people ran like mad to get away from it. My dad just stood there and watched. All he said was, “It was very pretty.” My mom was really mad and said, “Oh you would just stand there and watch Armageddon wouldn’t you..” 🙄


edwardsflu

“It was very pretty.” lmaoo last summer there was a tornado warning and my dad was just standing outside like 🙂🌪. Must be a requirement for fathers to stare at dangerous things for entertainment


Hope_is_Everywhere

*Quick, grab all the spray foam from the shed! We're going to plug up this hole!*


grantnaps

Beautifully terrifying


HumpDayFTW

Going to need a change of drawers after that

Run motha fucka! (Samuel L. Jackson voice)


DanAlucard

Running, motherf*cker. Do you do it?


Go_Gators_4Ever

I hope they were standing in the scaredy-hole and just had to duck and shut the cover!


shan68ok01

'Fraidy hole is the correct term. Source: I'm Oklahoman and old as fuck.


too_rolling_stoned

Indeed, it is!


Go_Gators_4Ever

Thanks for the clarification, we moved from Kansas when I was 7 and I am also old as Fuck so that's what I remembered.


shan68ok01

🤔 Could be a regional variation even though Kansas and Oklahoma are neighbors.


JourneyWith7

Ah yes. The Midwest. I’ll never forget the day I looked out my window and saw a tornado touch down in my yard. Little 8 year old me thought I was a goner lol.


DatL3afN1nja

That went from being over there to being over here real quick


isthatjacketmargiela

This is a recording of a tornado forming so...second hand witness.


sunra_lanquidity

KRNG

That’s fucking wilddd


xobrynne

Woah


shivi1321

This is the end of a tornado — in reverse.


Choppergold

Um dude…


LilOddBiDragonfly

Where should you be? Not the fuck there!


Pristine-Sprinkles-2

Terrifying. I was okay until I saw the dirt levitating and stretching to meet the tornado.


jarbuckle22

Right? What's up with that?


FatesMessEngineer

I'm amazed.


FreakOnALeash72

This isn't actually "First Hand"


GuyFoxed

He dead.


Jesus359

"ZEEEEEUUUUUUSSSSSS.." that's the only thing that came to mind.


Nova-XVIII

Where’s he going to run to inside that trailer just keep filming


jdmorgan82

Oh hell no. I’ve played this game before.


hadidotj

This is wicked close. Do you know the source? You should post/cross post this to r/tornado


protosoilder

Why does the title of this post make it sound like OP is creating the tornado and issuing a final warning


Abdul-Wahab6

Moments before disaster struck


the_lone_peen

This second hand, but still cool


_CottonBlossom_

When the ground raises up…that’s your que to GTFO!


Neapollitan

I love the increasing panic


MambyPamby8

Ya know when you see shit like this, it makes you realize why so many folk back in the day, had crazy religious beliefs. If I saw that 2000 years ago, without knowing wtf it was, I'd be freaking the fuck out thinking it was the wrath of a god.


GEEZUS00

That’s very cool.


Brassfist1

“Eh I got a minute or two… Eh… maybe a minute..? Wait, no, THAT’S JIMBOB’S YARD SHIT-“

This might be what Chinese dragon originated from.


Few-Nose9742

Secondhand?


rete_awded

i feel like i could stop it

Pinksunshine77477

HOLY SHIT!!


Noahcarr

I’m not sure you know what first hand means


Mita_Kondria

That was a terrifying video. My heart actually raced a bit just watching this.


CrowOf1000Names

That’s a boss fight.


zilchdota

I believe this is second hand 😂


cyrixlord

aw the video ended when he shit his pants. I don't blame him tho


Solid_Ad_7897

Im pretty much sure this is the part where you run


80wyatt08

The mindflayer?


SolidBlackGator

If watching a video means I've witnessed what I watched first hand... Then I was in 'nam even though I was born in the 80s?


Tenn8cious

Maybe run 🏃


Croppy_planter69

Not only does OP not know what firsthand means, the recorder is about to find out what it’s like to be killed in a tornado firsthand


Gene_freeman

Neat


Minimum_Bowl_5145

This was almost VERY dangerous


carebearmohawk

“Let’s see how close I can get”🤡


enormouspoon

It’s in reverse. But still wild.


RuskyBotnik666

How can you tell?
