Just recovered surveillance video of the Moore tornado reveals the violent storm from several different angles.
A camera facing South records the tornado as moves in...there on the upper right hand side of the screen..
This is less than a minute after the tornado hit Plaza Towers school...and the surrounding neighborhood.
As the storm moved closer to the church five cameras mounted around the church's family life center record it's violence. In all cases the wind seems to be moving to east, indicating the heart of the tornado is just to the side, the church narrowly escaping a direct hit.
Jackie Martin is a longtime member of the church and spent the two months trying to recover the video. The cameras had a battery backup, so they continued recording after electricity had been knocked out. But the DVR that recorded the video wouldn't play.
Finally, technicians were able to recover what is one of the few surveillance videos of storm as it moves through, and as this camera that's facing the north reveals moves on toward the 7-11 and the Moore Medical Center.
