Capturing the tornado's fury

19-year-old Charles Gafford captured amazing footage of the inside of the tornado from  his storm shelter. He was able to record from inside his storm shelter, and captured an amazing up-close imagery of this devastating tornado.  Gafford said he was 'absolutely terrified,' but he still 'felt safe.'

Gafford said it was a 'grueling two minutes' watching the tornado completely destroy everything in the neighborhood.

 After the tornado passed through Gafford and everyone with him went across the street to Briarwood Elementary School where they helped pull people out of the rubble to safety.
