Tornadoes struck the South again this week. Storm chasers intentionally seek out the storm while some shocked bystanders find themselves too close for comfort. They shared their video with FOX Weather.
"Oh my god," exclaimed the homeowner who watched a tornado form on the opposite bank of Lake Blackshear in Georgia from her home.
Storm chaser Brandon Copic caught a tornado in Leslie, Georgia crossing the road in front of him. "Look at that thing go," he marveled before he willed the SUV in front of him to stop. "Watch out buddy. It's coming right at you."

The same storm in Ellabell took Cliff Horton by surprise. His stepdaughter may be laughing now at his choice to photograph instead of taking shelter but clearly questioned the decision. She Tweeted, "Not my stepdad standing in the middle of a tornado…"
"That is not good… crazy," said Horton on the video. Moments later he takes cover when debris swarms his home.
One couple found themselves caught up in swirling winds – dodging tree branches and large hunks of metal. They drove through the apparent tornado. At the most violent moment, the woman called out, "I love you baby," just in case.
Thankfully they escaped harm.
