It Didn't Look Like a Tornado!
In addition to the tornado images at the start of the tape, there is good coverage of the damage at Lambert. When you play this video, you will be asking yourself, "where is the tornado?!" They are photographing it near I-70 but it didn't look like the conventional tornado.
That is what makes the warning system's performance at saving lives all the more remarkable last night and last weekend: Absent a warning you would have never known what was coming.
The chasers also stopped vehicles on I-70 from driving into the storm. Way to go, guys!
