Security video catches Colfax tornado on cam

COLFAX, Wis. (WEAU) -- The Cedar Country Co-Op's security camera was rolling as a tornado in Colfax came through on Friday.

As the wind started to pickup Friday afternoon, a black pickup truck can be seen turning the other way in the parking lot.

The co-op says in just a few seconds, debris was flying all over including tree limbs and branches, pieces of a house roof, shingles, nail boards and a calf hutch.

We're told the people inside the co-op were away from the windows. But it was a scary ten to fifteen seconds when the building started to shake.
