The media found itself in the midst of a brutal tornado that tore through Tupelo, Mississippi last weekend.

WTVA meteorologist Matt Laubhan was on the air when the tornado, one of many to rock the country, hit.

“This is a tornado ripping through the city of Tupelo as we speak, and this could be deadly,” Laubhan said. Then he announces to people off camera, “Basement. Now.”

It was a pretty frightening moment, but everyone in the station was okay.
