The Download: The Download
We marvel at them, prepare for them, run from them and take videos of them? From twisters to blizzards, Seven's Louis Aguirre gives us this week's stormy videos that will leave you spinning.
WSVN -- It's not traffic that's got this truck driver in a jam. Even a wide load couldn't hold up to a hefty helping of some strong winds, but watch closely as the video starts. This sorry semi wasn't the first victim of the storm, and it was no day at the beach for the folks caught up in this sandstorm.
It started slow, but, before long, the base was left in the dark.
Literally, talk about being taken off guard. This Japanese soccer game was rudely interrupted by one terrifying touchdown. Luckily, no one was hurt, but I wonder who won?
Not all storms are taken quite as seriously. Case in point, after a Cleveland blizzard, this snowy streaker decided to take on the local news and frostbite. Looks like the big chill won that round.
