    A view of the damage to property and a corn field caused by an apparent Tornado touchdown on 7/8/2015. This happened just east of Kelso MO and just south of Scott City MO.
    Clear path trough the cornfield, and it just missed that house by the road - very lucky. The touchdown continued across the river in to Illinois, snapping trees but no other major damage.
    The people there were clearing up and burning debris early; hard workin' folks.

    Shot with P3P, 1080p60.

    Great footage, thanks for sharing.
    I had some storm chasers ask me if I would go along and bring my P3 nest time they went out.
    I said I'd pass on flying in tornado conditions. :D

    It probably wouldn't be too impossible in FRONT of the storm, but when the rain curtain comes in, time to get down quickly. ;):)
