This striking footage comes from a car park in Springfield, Massachusetts. All seems peaceful at first, but before long disaster strikes. What starts as just a few strong gusts of winds almost instantly transforms into a dangerous tornado that has people running for cover.

Property damages from tornadoes in the United States vary from year to year. According to the National Climatic Data Center, 2011 was a particularly bad year with $28 billion of damage in that year alone. While there are certain parts of the world where tornadoes are more common, people rarely get to see footage captured inside of a tornado. This video is short, but the footage is truly eye-opening.
