Watch! Storm Chaser Films Tornado And It’s Way Too Close To Comfort

This is the moment a thrill-seeking weather watcher got within yards of a huge tornado that destroyed homes in Canada.

According to Metro, a severe thunderstorm produced the tornado that happened on Saturday in Alberta, according to local weather officials.

Forecasters warned of large hail and damaging winds as the supercell thunderstorm destroyed buildings, caused injuries and killed animals.

Environment and Climate Change Canada, the country’s national weather agency, issued emergency alerts for the storm and said it said was producing a tornado, damaging winds, large hail and intense rainfall.

‘Storm chaser’ Aaron Jayjack posted the terrifying video that shows the huge tornado gathering pace in the background as he is blasted by the high winds.

It created a large wedge formation that ripped up debris and dirt along its route.

Meteorologists said: ‘This is a dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation. Tornado warnings are issued when imminent or occurring thunderstorms are likely to produce or are producing tornadoes.’
