Massive South Dakota Tornado

Not exactly West River country and about 120 miles as the crow flies from Thunder Butte, but here is massive tornado caught on video by tornado chasers near Bowdle, South Dakota. Extreme weather is a feature of life on the South Dakota plains, and something that folks near Thunder Butte have to contend with from time to time, too. This particular twister evokes cries of, "Oh my God! Oh my God!"

Irony: the ad that plays before the CNN video is the Uracell ad showing a little girl enjoying a handheld fan and smiling engineers working on wind turbines on a sunny day. Ah, wind power... ;-)
