Videos record Christmas Tornado strike in Mobile, Alabama

Various videos show the scary Christmas Day Tornado that struck Mobile, Alabama on December 25, 2012. Thankfully, no one was killed or seriously injured by the storm, but it caused quite a bit of damage in the historic Midtown and Dauphin Way areas of the city.

The first is from the surveillance cameras at a Walgreen's store.

The second video is from the Holiday Inn downtown. The camera is facing south and east and shows the funnel crowd moving through.

The third video is from a similar angle, also from the Battle House Hotel downtown. The woman recording the video, Crystal Curry, can be heard praying for those in the storm’s path.

Tornadoes in Mobile are fairly rare. The one that raked the area on Christmas Day came five days after a similar storm struck an area about two miles west.
