Tornado Intercept Vehicle Shows What It’s Like to Be Inside a Twister [VIDEO]

Sean Casey Facebook

I don’t think it’s too much of a secret about my fascination with tornadoes. In fact, from the couple who wouldn’t let a twister ruin their wedding, to the news crew who had to take cover during live coverage of one, I’ve posted several videos on tornadoes. So, when I saw this video of some storm chasers who got footage of a tornado from inside, I had to show you.

The video was taken on May 27th in Kansas by Brandon Ivey and Sean Casey, and they posted it on their YouTube channel. The vehicle that they are in is called the TIV2 (tornado intercept vehicle) and is equipped with spikes that go into the ground to keep from being lifted off of the ground, as well as other safety precautions and instruments.

According to the caption on the video, wind speeds were from 150-175 mph when the instruments that record the speeds were ripped off by the twister as it rolled over their vehicle.

If you have ever wanted to know what it’s like to be inside one of these violent storms, this video will give you an idea. Check it out.
