Hey everyone here is a quick update, been busy trying to get footage for everyone on the trip. Had a quick look at Cyclone Jim’s footage of the 5/10 clip and it’s insane how close they were, the tornado is about 10 feet away from their car before and after it hit them. Will be […]

The wireless connection here sucks so i’m slowly uploading my photos, it will take me longer to upload my footage but I have some great clips […]

Here is the first update since i’ve been in Oklahoma. I flew in yesterday from Hartford with a layover in Chicago, and then right to Oklahoma City. I’ve never been at an airport where when you get on the plane you have to go outside to board and go up a ramp. And there were […]
