Powerful Tornado Crosses Road in North Texas

A storm chaser filmed the frightening moment a tornado crossed a road near the north Texas town of Crowell on May 4.

The tornado touched down near a collection of wind farms south of Crowell on Wednesday, as severe storms swept from northern Texas into Oklahoma.

The National Weather Service warned those in the path of the storm to immediately take precautions as the tornado moved through Foard County. The service later warned of life-threatening conditions as a “large and dangerous” tornado was seen in nearby Lockett.
