Storm chasers were perilously close to this tornado as it touched down at a farm in Bowling Green, Missouri, destroying a house, two barns and flipping over heavy equipment.
Neighbors gathered at the farm on Wednesday to assist in the clean-up effort.
Meanwhile, another tornado touching down in Carlinville, Illinois was also caught on camera ripping across farmland.
At least 45 people were killed across the southern United States in
three days of storms last week, nearly half of them in North Carolina
alone, the highest storms-related death toll in more than three years.
