Ever wondered what it's like to be on the road with a Texas tornado bearing down on you? Well, now you can find out, thanks to this video captured by Navarro County's emergency management coordinator, Eric Meyers.

According to CNN, Meyers rode out the tornado -- which registered winds of 125 mph -- in a stationary vehicle on a Texas highway. The tornado ripped through the rural Texas community late Sunday afternoon, injuring four people, lifting trains off their tracks, ripping the roof off of a local schoolhouse, and destroying at least five homes. A gallery of stunning photos taken by locals can be viewed here.

Meyers can be heard yelling "We are in the tornado!" several times throughout the video as debris shoots through the air all around him. You can watch the video Meyers shot from inside of his vehicle below:
