Huntsville Tornado Rated an EF2

Posted by Dan Satterfield

We continue to get pics and video from viewers after yesterday’s tornado here in the Huntspatch (Huntsville AL).

Viewer Lauryn Draper shot some great video fo it and put it up on YouTube. The video was shot a few blocks from our studios. The tornado WAS on the ground through most of this video I suspect. Tornadoes are wind and not cloud, so just because you could not see the funnel in contact with the ground does not mean it wasn’t.  It began doing damage near the end of this video.

Viewer Cristie Clark sent me the video below from a different angle. You can hear the Tornado Sirens sounding across the city clearly.
