Jason McLaughlin grabbed his camera and jumped in his car the moment he knew tornadoes were likely in the Dallas area Tuesday. Streaming his video live to a television station in Dallas, Jason narrated the scene as he rolled up on a community as a tornado touched ground and began tearing families' homes to pieces. A nearby elementary school, in the path of the twister, was largely spared–and the students had been moved to another school ahead of the storm.
Jason spoke to CNN's Erin Burnett about the tornadoes he witnessed, describing them as "unbelievable and heartbreaking."
