Guy Sticks a Smartphone Outside a Storm Shelter, Gets Up Close Footage of Moore, Oklahoma Tornado

Charles Gafford took cover in his storm shelter as the massive tornado passed through Moore, Oklahoma. As the tornado approached his neighborhood, he stuck his smartphone outside of the shelter and captured some pretty stunning, close-range footage.

Before the first person complains, yes, he shot it vertically. And, yes, that’s normally frowned upon. However, I think we can all give Charles a free pass since he had the most powerful tornado on record coming right at him.

Below is a video of what Charles’ neighborhood looked like after the tornado passed and he emerged from his storm shelter.

You can see more tornado sightings in yesterday’s roundup coverage.
