Tornado at St Louis Airport

What's fascinating about this video is the sudden change in wind direction. Watch the wind going on right outside the windows.

Also amazing to think that the airport staff had not cleared the building prior to the arrival of the tornado. Surely there was a watch or warning in the metro area? Would not an airport have the very best weather information in a city? I mean, nobody in this video seemed to be aware at all of the potential danger they were in... kids standing right up against the glass and everything. Thousands of people oblivious to what is going on outside. The gate probably had CNN or Fox News on the ubiquitous TV screens, with talking heads nattering on about some silly controversy... meanwhile, right outside the building....

Thinking of posting a comment to this blog entry? That's nice. But please note: As of January 19. 2014, I no longer review comments. So they will never appear. So don't bother. If you want to comment on something you read here, go to twitter and write your comment there and just include "@brianstorms" in the tweet. I am no longer moderating the comments here; I just assume everything is spam and Intense Debate seems to have abandoned support for its product.
