This footage was taken on the Ottawa Co. boarder on Hwy60 just south of Afton, OK as an 800 yard wide EF-1 tornado with winds up to 110 mph crossed over it. After loosing data and trying to navigate the storm with the help of a nowcaster I was unable to get far enough south safely to avoid the tornado and had it pass directly over my location.

Shortly after filming my encounter with the tornado I came across two semis that were overturned on I-44 by the tornado as it passed over their location.
