WYOMING, MICH. - A Wyoming family installed surveillance cameras on their home after someone broke into their car.
So far they haven’t recorded any burglars, but Nicole and Nathan Boyer do have video of a tornado tearing up their neighbor’s trees.
“None of the cameras got destroyed,” explains Nathan. “Didn’t even move.”
The afternoon of Aug. 20, when the tornado siren went off, the Boyer's took their son and dog and found shelter in the basement of their Boone Avenue home.
But their outdoor cameras kept recording and when the wind ripped two of their neighbor’s tall trees out of the ground, it was caught on video.
After the storm passed the Boyer’s watched the footage.
“I was like, wow,” says Nicole. “I mean, they just all tipped over. I’ve never seen anything like it.”
“They just dominoed over,” adds Nathan. “It was crazy.”
A neighbor posted the Boyer surveillance video on Facebook and thousands of people have watched.
They say their neighbor has also put it to good use to show his insurance company what happened and how his property and truck were damaged.
“The clip, from start to end, is only like a minute long,” says Nathan. “The winds only picked up for a couple of minutes.”
