He was following a supercell thunderstorm with the potential for tornadic activity. As he was driving along, he noticed a funnel developing. He watched as it roped down to the ground, sucking up debris into the swirling vortex. It got closer and closer until it dangerously passes over the road in front of him. On the other side, it shears the shingles off of a warehouse building. The shingles get sucked up into the vortex where they were violently thrown around. In the chaos, a rainbow could briefly be seen. The tornado roared on, picking up more debris into a dirt-brown funnel of destruction. Then, as quickly as the tornado formed, it disappeared back into the clouds where the blue sky was now peeking out from behind the veil.
