Once again, we’re in the unfortunate position of having to express our sympathy to yet another group of people caught off guard by Mother Nature’s fury.
Six people were killed, and many others displaced, when a wave of 16 tornadoes ripped through northern Texas earlier this week, devastating homes leaving the land a barren wasteland.
Our hearts go out to the many people there who have lost homes, family members, and friends.

In the midst of this tragedy, a few storm chasers caught some unbelievable footage of the tornado in action. While most of us can’t relate to the unmasked jubilation they display here, there’s no denying that nature is awesome, in the literal sense of the word. The following video provides a small look at the fearsome power of nature.
