Storm chaser captures stunning 360 degree video of devastating tornado
“Extreme storm chaser” Reed Timmer posted the seven minute video to his Facebook page. He said that he had filmed the large tornado as it formed about 100 miles east of Denver, just north of Wray, Colorado.
Timmer, famous for his work with Discovery Channel's Storm Chasers, shot the video using 360fly recording equipment attached to the roof of his SUV. The new recording technology offers the ability to move the camera to see the fast-moving twister from the base of the tornado to the dark storm clouds above.
As the weather front deteriorated, observers reported that the storm traveled about 10 miles on the ground, leaving a path of destruction. At least five people were injured after four tornadoes touched down in Yuma County, Colorado, at around 6:00pm on Saturday.
