Now that is one massively huge tornado.
When I was younger, we had twin tornadoes go around our house while my family and I were still in it. That was one of the most terrifying experiences of my life.
Thank goodness they were only rated a two.
Now I’m not sure about the other rating factors, but I am pretty sure that size alone would get that up to a four if not a five.
I have to admire the bravery of these guys (I’m choosing to not call it stupidity) for getting close to a tornado that is lasting that long and is that huge.
