Weather Channel producer and camera operator Austin Anderson, who was injured in the Oklahoma City tornado, talked about being caught in the storm in an interview with KWTV.

Anderson suffered a cracked sternum, five broken ribs, a broken vertebrae and a cracked vertebrae in his neck, according to KWTV. “I could remember it tumbling through the air and my head getting jerked back and forth,” Anderson told the Oklahoma City CBS affiliate. “… “Tornados are an amazing act of nature and it’s always amazing for me to see it. I just don’t think I should be as close as I was to this one.”

Anderson, who lives in Texas, used to work at KPRC in Houston. He also did an interview via Skype with KVUE, the ABC affiliate in his hometown of Austin. Watch it after the jump.
