A massive disclaimer: Reed Timmer is a meteorologist and professional storm chaser. He also has a vehicle called the Dominator that is specifically designed to survive a direct tornado hit. Don't even think of putting yourself in the path of a twister like his team did today.

All that being said, this is incredible video that Reed has shared. He first shows the wedge in the distance.

This is just one of the reasons why Reed Timmer is a must-follow if you have any kind of interest in storm chasing. He's truly one-of-a-kind.
