The power of mother nature can be utterly harrowing. In the video below, a storm chaser follows a tornado that touched down yesterday in Mississippi, during one of the worst tornado outbreaks in U.S. history.

So far, over 250 people have been reported dead due to storm-related damage, and over 1,000 injured. President Obama said he would tour one of the most-devastated areas, in Alabama, on Friday.

Stay safe out there.
