Yeah that’s not the photo unfortunately. The one I saw was apparently a screen capture of some video taken of the tornado. It actually looked like someone took a photo of a tv screen. There were those horizontal “line” artifacts that you get when you take a pic of one of those really old school TVs while they’re on. But saying that it probably wasn’t real because most QLCS are rain wrapped isn’t a fair deduction. It happens more than people realize. In fact, the one that hit my old neighborhood in 2015 had a fully condensed funnel, despite being embedded in a tiny squall line and hardly visible on radar.

But yeah, it was a photo I haven’t seen before of since, looked to be in the right setting, was in an article about that tornado, and labeled specifically mentioning that it was a photo of the Vancouver tornado itself, captured from a brief video that was taken that day. It very much seemed legit to me.
Moving to this thread - I didn't even think there were any photos of the Vancouver tornado, but actual video? That's extremely intriguing to say the least.

Yup. Even more interestingly, I’ve also heard rumors about lost a video of the Worcester, MA tornado, and I’m not talking about that one silent video taken inside a barn being destroyed shortly before it dissipated

Does anyone have the video from the Joplin EF5 where two people are driving through Joplin and trying to drive away from the tornado but end up right in the middle of it?
