Two days removed from a tornado that wrecked Washington, Illinois, damaging or destroying over 1,000 homes, first-hand footage has been posted on YouTube of a man who barely avoided death in the destruction of his home. As you can see from the video, he’s capturing the tornado coming toward his home on video, and seconds before it hits, he ducks out. Less than a minute later, he and his family come out of their basement to see little else but the the debris that makes up a large part of their home.
It’s unbelievable, and crushing to hear the family members look up to see the complete annihilation of their home. The sounds as the tornado crashes through … Dear God. It sounds like a chainsaw cutting through their home. Just wow.
