This is the edited video of my experience in Oklahoma on May 31, 2013 ... Including the devastating and violent EF-5 tornado that trudged south of El Reno, Oklahoma during the late afternoon. The El Reno tornado was the widest tornado in history and packed winds just under 300 MPH. 23 people lost their lives in this storm, including 4 storm chasers, with scientists Tim Samaras, his son Paul Samaras, and co-chaser Carl Young. This was a dark day in chasing as well as a near-death experience for me and some folks chasing around me as well. See what a tornado looks like at nearly 3 miles in width, and the subsequent traffic jams, accidents (yes, I was involved in one) due to careless driving, and even flash flooding. God bless all affected on this tragic day.
The video requires at least a DSL connection and the latest FLASH Media Plugin for best results. This video is hosted to and linked to the YOUTUBE site (you can visit them at www.youtube.com). Click on the "play" icon in the video above if it does not start automatically.
