  2. That's an airport terminal? Jeebus might have just done St. Louis a favor.

    Man! that's hideous.

  3. These people always video some B.S., but then when The Event happens, their Kubrick-like filming techniques fail them and we get shots of jacket pockets, palms and/or the floor. Step up your film game, people!

  4. The best part was the guy in the hat was texting before it hit and then just kept on texting after.

  5. @Allbeef - Lambert Airport main terminal concourses haven't seen any updates in about 20 years. After American bought TWA & St Louis quit being a hub, there really was no reason (or more importantly; money) for remodeling.

  6. 3 seconds of actual tornado & damage footage, 55 seconds of the guys feet, so boring
