Yesterday, we shared a video of storm chasers who were caught in the middle of Friday’s tornado in Union City, Oklahoma. They closely escaped.
Storm chasers Justin Cox and Chance Coldiron were just a few hundred yards away when the massive tornado that eventually struck Moore, Oklahoma first touched down.
