The Tornado Video

June 2, 2011

Here’s THE tornado video that everyone should see…the tornado that tore through downtown Springfield Massachusetts June 1st at rush hour.  While it’s true that some tornadoes look far more ominous with their black clouds and flashing lightning, this one far more vividly shows the strength of the wind sweeping around the vortex.  The tornado travels directly over the Connecticut River, sucking up spray and water.  Look closely at the speed of the spray & water wrapping into the center.  I’ve never seen such detailed video, and it goes on for over a minute. Click on the “480p” for the clearest view.
