Tornado lights up Seminole, Oklahoma with an electric flash

SEMINOLE, Okla. (KFOR) – A storm chaser spotted a tornado too close when it lit up the sky around him with a fearsome electric flash.

The tornado wreaked havoc in Seminole Wednesday night, toppling structures and snapping power lines.

Brian Emfinger, photojournalist and storm chaser, witnessed the wrath of the tornado as the whirlwind’s ferocity became both terrifying and brilliant.

Emfinger was driving to an intersection when a transformer exploded. Electricity erupted across the sky, blanketing it in vibrant, crackling colors.
