Man behind amazing Ala. tornado video speaks

University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa employee shot the video from basketball complex, says storm too big to capture fully on camera

(CBS News) -
An employee at the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa was able to catch some amazing video Wednesday of a tornado that ripped through the city.

Christopher England said on "The Early Show" Thursday he shot the video at one of the safest places at the sahool -- Coleman Coliseum, the men's basketball complex.

He explained, "The bottom two levels (of the building) are on ground-level or below ground-level, and it just so happened that my office is in Coleman Coliseum, and we're all in there, and the power went out. So we had no clue what was going on. So my boss and I went up to the third floor, and we actually ran up the stairs to the third floor to kind of look out the windows to see, you know, what we could see, and as soon as we looked out of the window, we saw what you see there in the video, and it was just, I mean, it was just amazing. I mean, we just couldn't believe what we were seeing."
