National Geographic's Online Tornado Exhibit

I have never experienced a tornado. I have had the "pleasure" of experiencing hurricanes and of course earthquakes. I do not fear earthquakes, but I do have a fear of the unknown, which in this case is a tornado. So being curious as hell I enjoyed this online video exhibit. Its the first time anyone has placed a "probe" in the direct path of a tornado, much less on the ground and it survived. I am sure this might be a disturbing video for folks that have experienced the devastation that a tornado can produce. So..do not watch it if this is the case for you. The video link is in the title of this post..the home page is here: http://magma.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/0404/feature1/index.html

All that kinda stuff scares the shit outta me. It's one of the reasons I like where I live. We don't experience those kinda things often. And usually if we do, it's not so bad it makes national news. We just had a toronado but a couple weeks ago. A friend of a friend caught some video and it was weird to see in my city.
