Saskatchewan storm chaser Greg Johnson was driving through Moore about half an hour before the massive tornado hit.
He says the team kept going because chasing tornadoes is more dangerous within a city.
Even watching the aftermath on social media Johnson says the devastation never fails to shock him.

The ritual of setting up nets, catching birds, and releasing them is one that Alan Smith has repeated each year for the past two decades at the Last Mountain Bird Observatory. But the kinds of birds he studies is not constant.
"The nets are in the same place, open on the same hours each day. By doing it consistently over a period of time we're able to see what kind of species are increasing and which ones aren't doing so well," Smith said.
Those changes in bird populations reflect back on environmental changes in Canada.
