Surveillance Footage Catches Small Louisiana Tornado Flipping a Car


Hot yesterday, cold today. That’s been the story of the weather in East Texas as of late and our neighbors in Louisiana fell victim to some violent weather over the weekend.

The Acadania Advocate shared surveillance footage of a small tornado that flipped a car at a Lafayette auto shop – now it wasn’t a huge one, but clearly it was pretty powerful.

Chase Broussard, one of the owners of Auto Xtreme Collision Center told KLTV that he was shocked at the footage as the 2016 Nissan Altima weighs 4,226 pounds.

The same storm system is responsible for the death of a mother and daughter in Beaux Bridge. Governor John Bel Edwards declared a state of emergency earlier.
