UPDATE 11/22: This video appears to have been removed from YouTube but a video featuring the clip from ABC Chicago has been added in its place.

One second it's there, the next second it's gone.

In the wake of the deadly tornadoes that tore through central Illinois Sunday, it can be difficult to fathom the sheer terror of seeing someone's home literally disappear in an instant, but a new video uploaded Wednesday to YouTube captures exactly that happening in real time.

The 36-second video, taken in Diamond, Ill., shows debris flying through the air shortly befoe the sky-blue home in the background is torn out of the ground, leaving a pile of rubble in its wake.

According to the video description, the heralding footage was taken from the security camera at TD Pete's Shell/Dairy Queen.

The description continues: "By the grace of God there were No INJURIES!!! Nobody was in the house which was a show house…"

Watch the incredible footage in GIF form (thanks, Business Insider!):

Diamond, Ill. was hit by an EF-2 tornado -- with winds between 111 and 135 mph -- on Sunday, ABC Chicago reports.

That twister is just one of at least 16 tornadoes that are said to have touched down in Illinois that day, leaving behind a path of destruction that resulted in 13 counties being declared disaster areas by Gov. Pat Quinn, according to the Chicago Tribune.
