    First 10 Minutes of Moore Tornado

    Shows how quickly this went from nothing on the ground, to one mile wide.

    6:45 see how high and easily the cars (possibly) are thrown in the air.

    that is just crazy how it only took about 3 seconds to go from a spindly little thing barely touching the ground to the classic scary movie tornado. And then it just gets crazy big.

    Classic example why the much-maligned "Doppler-indicated" tornado is still an automatic warning.

    Waiting for something to be on the ground (ignoring the fact that you'd never have enough reliable spotters anyway) is going to be way too late.

    That thing looked like our old logo early on. Man....what a monster. Fun to watch but feel guilty when you realize people were killed.

    Oh my Lord. This is beautifully tragic. It's amazing something so awe inspiring and so mesmerizing can be so devastating. Unreal.

    TWC showed the Doppler of that thing developing. Almost as incredible as the real thing. Never seen anything like it.

    Great video.
    Still praying for and looking for ways to help the survivors.

    Thanks for sharing and educating.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    That is unreal to watch. Hard to imagine that type of destruction. Prayers are still going out to all those involved.
