Marc Wells was with his oldest daughter, Josie, in their home when the twister headed in their direction.

Six are dead and more than 1,500 homes were destroyed by an EF-4 tornado that went through Washington, Ill., on Sunday. The aftermath is tough to watch.

Marc Wells was with his oldest daughter, Josie, in their home when the twister headed in their direction. With a video camera in hand, he captured a few moments of the tornado before finding a safe place to hide.

When the tornado finally passed through their house, Wells came out to find his home destroyed. He struggled to describe it to his daughter, who still wouldn’t come outside.

What’s even more devastating than the visual of the utter destruction is the terror in Marc and Josie’s voices.

Originally uploaded to Facebook and YouTube, a reuploaded video later went viral on Reddit, landing on the front page.

Watch a team of paramedics save the life of an electrocuted monkey
One poor monkey underwent what was surely the most confusing few minutes of his life earlier this week in Thailand. The fuzzy, big-toothed humanoid apparently escaped from his owner's care before wandering into an electrical transformer. As in most battles waged between living flesh bags and high-voltage power surges, the electricity won. The guy was pretty much a goner—until a team of Thai paramedics arrived to administer CPR.
