A few days ago, US authorities reported that a dangerous storm system in the Midwest of the United States produced several tornadoes that caused serious damage to buildings in Missouri.
The meteorologist Reed Timmer, renowned for investigating these formations, decided to venture, record the strong winds and study their density and behavior without imagining what would happen.
When he was filming the tornadoes, he was trapped inside one and recorded inside , despite the danger he was risking to undergo.
The recording was made on May 17 and Timmer ran with luck to leave unharmed. To see that there was no way to escape the fierce tornado, the meteorologist took out his cell phone and recorded what he was living.
Then he shared the recording on social networks and quickly went viral.
