Special guest post by Raghad Rabah.
I chose these videos — what I consider to be the top 10 tornadoes caught on security cam — to show the versatility of surveillance solutions. Granted, the cameras that caught the tornadoes presented here had a different goal when initially installed. But as you can see below, these cameras can often go beyond their intended purpose. And sometimes, with a little luck, you can get a glimpse at something that otherwise might have gone unseen.
