Vilonia Tornado Video

I just received this video from Channel 7 viewer, Scott Patrom.  It's more terrifying scenes as the tornado passed very close to his house.  Towards the end of the video, you can see debris flying in the air.  You can also hear the roar of the tornado!  Here's the email Scott sent and the video below.

"Just thanking everyone in the newsroom, especially Ned, Todd, Barry for the excellent coverage with the weather this week. I live in Vilonia and the tornado just hooked to the NW of us a few hundred feet. I set my video camera in the upstairs window and got to the closet with the family."

I am from Oregon (born and raised)with relatives in Little Rock. We have never had to live with fear like this here in our State. That video is amazing and I watched with my heart pounding and hand over my mouth! My heart goes out to all of you that are now living with that fear of - what next and when? Thank you so much for the insight and graphic view of mother nature at her worst!

To think this is a glimpse of the moment my best friend and husband were killed...the sounds...I cried again for them...the terror they must have felt
