Some great footage of actual tornados. As a resident of tornado alley, it’s amazing how quickly tornadoes form, move and dissolve back into the storm. And the destruction is chilling and occurs so quickly. I would rather follow the science of Dr. Josh Wurman than tornado road warrior Sean Casey

It is a thrilling, engaging and edge-of-your-seat documentary.
