Having lived in Mississippi when I was younger, I can tell you that tornadoes are no joke. Here is a bit of video proof.

I really don't have any idea where this is but I can tell you that I have seen similar things. When I was living in Jackson, Mississippi when I was younger, I witnessed some wicked storms. Storms that shut down the city for days, were the cause for school being closed, and even ripping the roof off. The scary part is that you may not even see it coming.

On the flip side, the "calm before the storm" is one of the coolest things I have ever seen. First, a storm or less than perfect weather would roll through. Next, the skies would clear up and it would be beautiful out. Finally, an angry storm would send you running for cover and sometimes would pass just as fast.
