On Tuesday, April 30, more than 40 tornadoes ripped across the central U.S. Twisters touched down from Texas to Missouri, wreaking havoc along the way. WeatherNation field crews captured incredible visuals from the ground, and the air as the tornadoes took shape. WeatherNation covered storms live keeping the public safe and informed as the day unfolded. The most impressive visuals came out of southern Oklahoma. Our Field Correspondent, Brandon Clement, captured it all with his drone.
