Legendary and Emmy Award winning Storm Chaser Jeff Piotrowski and Published Photographer/Storm Chaser Kathryn Piotrowski captured every stunning, heart gripping moment in HD from two camera perspectives. This footage is "the best tornado footage you will ever see" shot at incredibly close range from inside the wrap around of the tornado and within blocks of the violent core�flying debris pelting their chase vehicle "The War Horse".
With debris still falling all around them and the deafening roar of the tornado slowly fading, Jeff and Kathryn Piotrowski went into search and rescue mode�they were the first to arrive on Iowa St., which took a direct hit from the core of the EF-5. Jeff began pulling people from the rubble and Kathryn pulled large, twisted metal beam debris out of the road for rescuers and emergency personnel to gain access.
Survivors, Amber Munson, Ryan Tackett, Mark Lindquist as told by his sister Linda Lindquist-Baldwin, Lucian Myers and Judy Owens-Lowe share their unique stories of survival and courage.
