Iowans may have escaped unscathed after the threat of tornadoes Thursday but security footage from Mississippi shows the devastation that can be caused.

The camera caught the moment the April 28th tornado directly hit St. Luke United Methodist Church in Tupelo and the playground outside.

The church and surrounding trees were extensively damaged. Who ever built the playground deserves a prize.
