While the devastation from yesterday’s tornado in Moore, Oklahoma boggles the mind, the video below may prove even more astonishing. An unknown (but brave) videographer managed to capture not only the birth of the tornado in Newcastle, Oklahoma, but also its evolution from a small twister to the massive EF-5 monster that leveled homes and took many lives during its 45-minute trek through Moore.

Check out the video below (edited to remove jerky scenes where videographer re-positioned himself to get a better vantage point):
