As seen on The Weather Channel, Weather Gone Viral TV show, episode 2, Vacations From Hell. Myrtle Beach tornado 2001. We were up on about the 10th floor of the hotel on the balcony facing the beach. The tornado came right down the beach front and we got it from one end of the beach to the other. The craziest thing i've even seen! The sand and water being sucked into the tornado is really awesome! Enjoy!


Brandon Jones : Rumor is a a few sharks were spotted inside the tornado

kizza1991 : ''look at that damn tube goin' yonder'' haha!

john doe : Just goes to show you that even tornadoes need a day at the beach.

C. Frank : That was the MOST AWESOME footage I've ever seen. storm chasers don't get that great of footage. Fantastic video

RockHead TM : I live in sc.... when I saw this I said "only people in South Carolina would be running in circles around the beach during a tornado.😂

GMoney Funk Daddy : Thanks for the positive comments! From what we understand, it was on land, came to water, then back to land. So tornado, water spout, awesome is all i know! Lol

Topsx4 : That couldve been a major tragedy if it tracked closer to the hotels! Thank God it didnt

Orange Joe : Our videographer is quite correct in his intuitive statements in the first part of the video. They were staring directly at a rapidly rotating wall cloud. Bad shit happens when you see one of those.

Assata Giovanni : A Shark sighting wouldve been amazing lol

MikePlaysIt : Amazing opportunity to study the anatomy of a tornado/waterspout and to actually see how they work. With the water and sand getting sucked in along the ground in bands, being drawn up along the side. Man this was an amazing video.

Bill Loman : Lucky people. I would have been down on the beach filming that. Death wish? Maybe, but damn thats pretty

tori t : Wild. I left the beach 5 minutes before this tornado hit. I was on vacation to visit my family. Then the second tornado struck down near us after we left! I was a kid, so I was scared shitless

Pyro Maniack : Not sure if I want to see a tornado, but I definitely want to see a waterspout since they are safer

Sora B : it seems like the water spout was pulling everything towards it
