They're always a very energetic and quite a rush to experience. Knowing that for a short period of time everyone in your city, be it 100 or 3,000,000 people, are all focusing on exactly the same thing.

A tornado.

So, lets see videos of tornado warning's in your city. The storm, the sirens, the darkness.

Here's one in Chicago around rush hour a few years ago:

and another one from south of Chicago. These are the most scary - when it's the middle of the night and suddenly you wake up to loud sirens blaring. I love what he says at the end.....

Here's one that tore right through my hometown of Iowa City in 2006. There were SEVEN different tornadoes that went through the area that night. Two hit the city itself, one was an F3 that went through the heart of downtown.

Some frat dudes up at Loyola got some good footage of that Chicago tornado touching down on the lake:

My town's pretty small, so we don't have any tornado videos online.

If a tornado warning does go off we usually just go sit in the bathtub and wait for it to pass.
