An amateur video has captured the massive, deadly tornado that tore through Joplin, Missouri on Sunday.

Posted by The Guardian, credited to TornadoVideos.net Base Hunters, the video shows the massive twister from a safe distance as it tears through the town. The person filming then goes on to capture the tragic path of destruction, showing buildings completely leveled, as one person off screen exclaims, "The trees are debarked!"

Another video from Joplin, Missouri captured the horrors from inside the storm.
