Surveillance video shows St. Louis tornado ripping through airport (with video)

The headline:  Watch a tornado rip through St. Louis’ airport

The summary:  A surveillance video at St. Louis’ Lambert International Airport captures a recent tornado tearing through one of its concourses.

The reaction:  What I’m struck by when watching this video is the number of people who seem to be just going about their normal business up until mere seconds before the tornado hits.

Were they not able to see the tornado coming outside?  Was their not some type of warning issued over the airport’s PA system?

The video is absolutely striking for how quickly it moves through and the damage that results.  It’s amazing that no one was killed in this tornado.
