The Outlaw Chasers - Pilger, NE Footage

The Outlaw Chasers, Randy "Outlaw" Hicks and Lisa, got some amazing footage of the Pilger, NE tornado that sadly did major EF-4 damage to that town.  They have multiple camera angles, including a probe with three cameras that almost took a direct hit.  It produced some amazing up close and personal footage.  If you are a FB user, you can "Like" their page, I would expect more interesting video to follow soon.

There is some language, so if that bothers you, feel free to mute the audio.  However, you will miss some intense sounds.
