‘We are in the tornado’: Amazing storm video

Two tornadoes caused damage in Texas on Sunday, and a county official caught one on tape as it tore the roof off a school a block from his car. That’s his video above.

The video was taken by Navarro County emergency management coordinator Eric Meyers, who can be heard yelling “We are in a tornado, we are in the tornado!”

Meyers was in Rice, about 40 miles southeast of Dallas, when the storm hit about 5:30 p.m. Sunday. “The sheer power was amazing,” he told CNN.

Wind speeds with the tornado were estimated at 125-135 mph. The Associated Press reported four people suffered minor injuries in the storms.
