Video Rating: 4 / 5

On April 14, 2012, storm chasers Dave Demko and Heidi Farrar documented multiple tornadoes in northern Oklahoma, near the towns of Cherokee and Manchester, including two simultaneous tornadoes from close range (click here for more video from the violent “drillbit” tornado found in this sequence — EXTREME wind velocities–likely well into the range associated with EF-5 damage–were responsible for the dramatic audible roar as the tornado moved within 100 yards of them). This same storm continued northeast into Kansas and produced several damaging tornadoes after dark, notably in south Wichita and at McConnel Air Force Base in Andover.

    A tornado jumps over the highway!!!!

  • cflo1386 says:

    at 1:00 the moron is on the dedian then decides to start driving towards the Tornado and quickly sees all the debris only to pull over once again.

  • reddibacon says:

    Are you kidding me I just said. It’s not a tornado if it’s not touching the ground. Period. And that is beside the point because it is. Look at the wind and flying debris! If it causes a circulation of wind and debris, it’s a tornado. Trust me I study weather. There is NO SUCH THING as a “tornado not touching the ground”.

  • prototype434 says:

    Hey go to hell asshole

  • Rose Bud says:

    I know what a funnel cloud is. It’s a tornado that hasn’t touched the ground yet. To me, it just looks like it hasn’t touched the ground yet because of the looks of the wind and how it’s blowing.

  • reddibacon says:

    Not touching the ground? That makes no sense at all. How can a tornado that was doing damage and causing strong winds and destruction on AT GROUND LEVEL not be on the ground? If it causes wind on the ground, it’s a tornado. A tornado “not touching the ground” (there is no real such thing technically) would be called a funnel cloud. A circulation not touching the ground cannot produce damage or wind at ground level. I have heard people say this kind of thing before and can’t sense of it

  • Rose Bud says:

    Isn’t that like a tornado that just hasn’t touched the ground yet? Cuz that’s what it looks like.
    And some people in their cars are dumb cuz they are driving right up to it lol! :)

  • utubejennymac says:

    amazing footage

  • TheRanchero1975 says:

    Lord Jesus Christ please save my family and I from the wrath ,greed and lies of EVIL Texans.


  • ProChoiceJesus says:

    Perhaps, like me, something like; “As an educated tornado chaser, I can look at this tornado and tell it’s an EF1 or EF2, I can see it’s track & it’s moving pretty straight, I know from experience I can get right on the wind’s edge & not be in any danger, so I’m going to get this close because I want to and it’ll make for some great video.” Most, however, who lack this learning, stay away out of fear. In old age, most will wish they’d have taken a little more risk into adventure.

  • KirstenS662 says:

    i’m not really good with all this dangerous weather stuff so if you could, please answer this: why do the cars stop and not try to drive away from the tornado?

  • pierusa123 says:

    This one is much smaller than the Tornado Crosses Kansas Highway – YouTube.

  • thepowerfulnews says:

    Yet you still have fucking retards driving right through its path.

  • W3BZero says:

    One of the best tornado videos I have seen!!

  • fatherman73 says:

    Heidi: ‎”Are you reporting this?”
    Dave: “Yes”
    Heidi: “Ok. Dave, are you looking? Are you reporting it?”
    Dave: “Yes, I reported it”
    Heidi: “Did you report both of them?”
    Dave: “I reported two.”
    Heidi: “Watch the road.”
    Dave: “Ok”
    Heidi: “Are you watching the road?”
    Dave: “Yes”

    — Wow. Far more interesting than the tornado.

  • Stickmanzed says:

    @PeterPiemel Probably because they’re scared as fuck lol…

  • colmcq says:

    you almost had the most incredible footage I’ve ever seen. Almost. The autofocus killed it. Please get a good video camera. Canon MKii or Sony very good. You can control the zoom easier on these too!

  • utubegrape says:
