Tornado Touches Down Behind Missouri TV Station

The moment a tornado touched near the Missouri-Kansas border was seen from the studios of a local TV station in Joplin.

Ryan Land said he filmed the tornado from behind the studios of KODE-TV 12, where he works. He said the tornado seen was in nearby Galena.

Shortly before Land posted his video, the National Weather Service had warned of a potentially “life threatening situation” in Galena, and nearby areas.
