One Texas driver caught insane footage of being caught right in the middle of one of those tornadoes. Fox 4 News KDFW reported that Blake Foster was driving on his way home when he heard the tornado sirens. Just moments later, he noticed that what seemed to be a tornado passed right over him. His only protection from the storm was his Toyota Tundra. Check out the video below:
