08/16/2010 Gary, CO Standing Under Tornado Video

On Monday, BNVN Weather Paparazzi Eric Treece was chasing one of the several tornadoes that formed in eastern Colorado along Highway 71 south of Brush, CO.

In the footage, Eric is standing underneath a rope tornado that is less than a quarter mile away from him on the ground and rises up and extends over him as it goes up to the cloud base. The video pans back to the ground and back up to the cloud base to show how large and how long the tornado actual is.

As you watch this footage, note that the tornado from the clouds does extend to the ground but there is rotation on the ground. The condensation funnel of the tornado is invisible until it touches the ground and throws debris into the air.
