On April 22, a huge tornado swept through the city of Madill, Oklahoma. Watch the alarmingly close video captured by storm chaser Pecos Hank below.

The storm blew through some fielded areas before ravishing through industrial buildings in Madill. According to KOCO News 5, a local Oklahoma news station, two people were tragically killed in this tornado that damaged a church and multiple other structures.

Oklahoma Steel and Wire was one of several businesses affected by the tornado, which ripped away the company’s roof off of their building. Luckily, everyone present at the time of the storm stayed safe in the structure’s storm shelter. 

“Currently, OKSW owners, managers and employees are implementing a plan to access overall damage. We are in constant contact with government emergency management agencies, utility companies, and insurance adjusters. It is too early to have a full assessment of the property damage, but it is extensive and in some areas, severe,” the company said in a statement following the storm.

A tweet below shows the aftermath of the company’s building following the tornado.

Weather experts are still assessing the consequences left behind by the twister. The apparent damage, however, shows the tornado was at least an EF2 on the Enhanced Fujita scale, according to a Facebook post from the US National Weather Service Norman Oklahoma.

An EF2 grade tornado has winds between 111 and 135 miles per hour and leaves substantial damage. One look at Pecos Hank’s video of the storm will reveal that the tornado fits the description.
