It’s been a rough year for severe weather, and we're only halfway through peak storm season. 

For me, tornadoes are equal parts terrifying and fascinating. I’m one of those people who just has to go outside and take a look at the sky during a tornado warning before quickly heading for shelter. 

Everyone around here was on edge all day Saturday (April 27), braced for potentially severe weather. And sure enough, we had one of the biggest tornado outbreaks in a long time here in Texas and up in Oklahoma. The Sooner State was hit particularly hard.

Back to my fascination with tornadoes. I’ve shared a lot of tornado content over the last few years. And let me tell you, it never ceases to amaze me just how brave (and maybe a tad bit crazy) some people are. 

For instance, if I happen to spot a tornado on the ground, I’m headed for shelter immediately. Those things are notorious for quickly changing directions and heading right for people who think they’re not in their path. 

Fortunately for TikTok user Lion Latch, that was not the case with a tornado that had formed near West, Texas last Saturday. The twister moves across the prairie from right to left right in front of her and appears to be breaking up toward the end of the video. 

She definitely should consider herself lucky.
