    Severe weather

    Midwest Tornado


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Crig1, a truck driver, captured photos of the intense weather overhead at the Flying J truck stop in Lebanon, Indiana, on November 17. 'I was parked there the night before after delivering a load near by. Midday that morning I saw the tornado alert for the entire area. I didn't think much of it getting those in Texas but my weather bug app on my phone went off with a take cover alarm,' he explained. 'I was watching a movie at the time and when I saw people running out of their trucks taking cover I grabbed my camera and started shooting. When the debris cloud looked like what I see in movies I took cover in the lowest part of the truck. I prayed hard. After it passed I got out to see debris covering the ground,' he said.

    EDITOR'S NOTE: Tornadoes and other severe weather events are dangerous and unpredictable. Please do not risk your safety to capture images of a storm.
