Aerial Video Shows Damage From Monday's Tornado

More Video...

There is a different perspective of Monday's tornado that tore through parts of Beaufort and Hyde counties.

Walter O'Neal, director of technical services for Tideland EMC, shot video of the damage from an airplane.

O'Neal said he shot the video as he flew over the area of U.S. 264 East in Pantego, and then towards Ponzer in Hyde County.

From the air, O'Neal says it appears the EF2 tornado stayed on the ground the entire time as it crossed from one county to the other. O'Neal says he knows some of victims, and was shocked to see something like this happen.

Beaufort County Emergency Management says it is still accessing damage from the tornado and doesn't have a dollar estimate yet of damage.
