One of the most frightening places to be during a tornado has to be in your car, exposed on the interstate. Indeed, when the deadly tornado ripped through the eastern suburbs of Dallas two weeks ago, many victims were driving on I-30. Now the NTTA has released footage from its cameras which show the tornado ripping across the President George Bush Turnpike.

There are five or six separate shots, and though blurry and difficult to decipher, it’s all pretty terrifying stuff. Perhaps it is precisely because the images are so un-cinematic — you never get a real shot of the tornado, only swirling debris, bending trees, blurring headlights, shaking camera, vapor appearing on the asphalt — that this footage captures something of the terrible, incomprehensible nature of disaster.
