Watch: Driver barely avoids huge chunk of flying debris during Oklahoma tornado

(STORYFUL) — A storm chaser and his partner got a little too close to a tornado for comfort near Marietta, Oklahoma, on April 27, with dramatic video showing the car they were in narrowly avoiding falling debris as a powerful, damaging twister crossed their path.

The scary moment came during a Facebook Live stream by Jesse Rossi.

In the video, Rossi and his partner can be heard wondering about the cloud formation ahead of them before realizing that they are facing a tornado.

A few moments later, as the pair look to pull over off Interstate 35, a large chunk of debris falls straight in front of the car, narrowly missing them.

The National Weather Service confirmed a powerful EF3 tornado had hit the area. Several buildings were destroyed and extensive damage sustained along I-35.
