The captions on this video explain everything, but because I want to fill up space and not seem like I’m wasting time, here’s the meat. A Freight train traveling through the state of Illinois “accidentally” crossed paths with a F2 tornado. I get that trains, especially freight trains, are very difficult to stop. Though the weather is pretty easy to predict, at least a few miles out like this tornado was. Surely the central command new something about possible weather issues ahead. Though, then again, Tornadoes are spontaneous. Perhaps it did just materialize out of nowhere and toss those train cars around like a toys.
Lesson to be learned here – nature is scary, don’t mess with it.
