By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

A drone captured incredibly close-up footage of a tornado in Oklahoma.

WeatherNation TV released the dramatic video, which was recently captured by correspondent Brandon Clement.

The drone is no more than 50 yards away from the tornado. You can watch as it plows through the countryside for a few miles. No people or structures were harmed.


“It’s been a shot I’ve been trying to capture for years,” said Clement, who used a specially-designed drone equipped for wet weather. “Fortunately, it wasn’t raining and I had the wind on my side.

The video has made the rounds on local and national news.
