The most intense home footage of the tornadoes you'll see all weekTwo f5 tornadoes strike a highway in Alabama.

Let me just begin this post by stating an old television warning: “Do not try this at home.” Nate Hughett and Ryne Chandler went in search of tornadoes in the middle of last week’s devastating wave of weather in Alabama and found two gigantic twisters making their way over the very highway they were riding down. The action starts around the 7:00 mark, and luckily, neither boy was hurt. They did, however, capture some amazing footage:

Again, I cannot stress this enough: Never, ever go tornado chasing in the hopes you will become a YouTube celebrity. The risk just isn’t worth the Internet fame.
