Tornadoes, As Seen From The Sky

Here is some video of one of the 21 tornadoes that ripped through Oklahoma last night, bringing baseball-sized hail and rainstorms along with them; the storms left tens of thousands of residents without power and more than a few stores completely leveled. This clip is notable because it was taken from a news helicopter that was in the air, which seems sort of like a job that I would demand hazard pay for? Although perhaps the "thrill" of piloting a chopper in such conditions is more than enough compensation for these workers!

Be honest Maura, you were just moving and shaking the camera over a spread from National Geographic, weren't you?

I don't think that fucker moved.

I see undulating and movement!! Maybe my eyes are just SPAZZING OUT??

It would be great if that's what the helicopter pilot did after they ordered him to go up and get a shot, dangerous conditions be damned.

But whom does Pat Robertson blame this on, if not godless, Darwin-loving Oklahomans?
