Watch up close as tornado rips apart Billings sports arena

Watch up close as tornado rips apart Billings sports arena

Seeing storm chaser video of tornados in the Midwest isn't that rare for late spring into summer, but seeing in in Montana is quite unusual.

Take a look at this video as the people in the car capture a tornado that appears to form and hover over the Rimrock Auto Arena in Billings, Montana on Sunday. What's really incredible, aside from how close the photographer was to the tornado, was how the tornado seemed to hover in place over the arena.

Warning!!! -- There is some off-color language on this video as the photographers couldn't contain their excitement. But if I were that close to a tornado, I'd probably have uttered a few myself!
