Birth of a Tornado captured by a storm-chaser but tragically he is no more :(

Formation of a Tornado captured  in South-Central Kansas of  USA., two days before the devastating Oklahoma tornado.

The video was captured by Paul Samaras,  son of  National Geographic  storm  researcher Tim Samaras.

A scary and dangerous research cum hobby  to capture  when the wind speed is well over  200 miles per hour.

Tragically the  storm researcher, his son and one of their friends  were killed 10 days after the  recordings in the Oklahoma tornado.

RIP Samaras
