Earlier today, a series of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms bulldozed through southern Louisiana, leaving devastation in their wake. East New Orleans, which was devastated by Hurricane Katrina 12 years ago, experienced major damage as a result, including NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility. Early reports from NASA…
Ethan is moving to Oklahoma and his family is growing. He has to give up his Pontiac Solstice for something practical, fun, and in what I can only describe as an “Oklahoma problem,” the ability to outrun a tornado. What car should he buy?
On Wednesday, a tornado described by the National Weather Service as “large and extremely dangerous” tore through central Indiana, overturning cars and leveling a Starbucks store, Weather.com reports. Miraculously, no injuries have been reported.
Tornadoes. When you see a warning about them on the weather channel, it usually advises you to take shelter or get on out of there. But some folks are into chasing those storms, and we end up with extreme close ups of a phenomenon that a lot of us would rather not venture out to get for ourselves.
It is always interesting to see what surplus military hardware ends up on the private market. While browsing aircraft classified ads I came across this mint condition, swing-wing Tornado F2A fighter-interceptor for sale. I have never seen one of these beauties on the market, so I had to contact the seller to get the…
This Dodge Challenger Hellcat was spared from a tornado that completely destroyed everything around it. That or we finally have proof that a Hellcat is more powerful than a tornado.
An incredibly powerful storm just blew through Louisiana, bringing not only heavy rain and clouds so thick they turned day into night, but also monstrously powerful winds. Winds so powerful, they blew a freight train clear off a bridge, sending shipping containers careening down below.
It takes a certain kind of supreme inner peace to see a massive wedge tornado head straight towards your face, have no real escape, and only be able to mutter, “It’s coming right over the top of me. I don’t really know what to do, except, I guess, sit here.” Either supreme inner peace, or, you know, quaaludes.
A tornado just touched down at a state prison in Blountstown, Florida, flinging cars upside down and stacking them on top of each other like it was nothing. Between 25 and 30 vehicles were caught in the immediate carnage and look to be completely destroyed.
We've seen plenty of Russian dash cam videos. We've also even seen a couple of videos from inside tornadoes. But this beautiful mashup of crapitude combines the two genres of desolate waste, making the occupant of this Russian car stuck in a tornado officially the person with the Bad Day of the Week.
Well at least it happened towards the end, and Al Unser's old Camaro managed to crash on its own. There are no reports of damage so far, but if you're still at the Goodwood Festival of Speed you might want to find shelter. No, an Aston Martin does not count as shelter.
A tornado reportedly just touched down in the town of Speedway, Indiana, the place that not coincidentally houses the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Reports of damage so far include some torn roofs and some downed trees, but the Brickyard appears to be unhurt.
I know that "technically" the people in this video are "professional" "storm chasers," and that "technically" they "know what they're doing," but by golly I can't fathom anything that would make me want to drive straight towards these whirling vortices. That's nuts.
When a tornado was bearing down on the residents of the energy boomtown of Watford, North Dakota, the only thought for safety these guys had was getting into their pickup truck. That couldn't be more wrong, and they're lucky they survived.
A clutch of tornadoes ripped across the South and Midwest yesterday, killing at least 28 people, and injuring many more. It took a lot of people's homes and cars with it too.
Can a car ever be considered a hero? There are some people in Moore, Oklahoma who might see the bright orange 2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon known as "Stomper" that way. Though the Jeep was badly damaged, its owner reportedly used it to rescue people from the devastating storm. And now Stomper is getting a full rebuild.
This Mustang got wrapped around a tree by the EF5 tornado that hit Oklahoma. The tornado couldn't kill the car though, and it didn't stop it from doing a burnout.
And he's still driving it.
See the little blue arrows in that video? Those are storm chasers in their vehicles. Now see that big white blob that moves across the screen? That's the tornado in El Reno, Oklahoma that is considered the widest one in U.S. history and killed four storm chasers on Friday.
