Guests barely flinch as Kansas couple weds with tornadoes swirling in the background
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) ' On the plains of Kansas, tornadoes are so unremarkable that wedding guests barely flinched as a couple exchanged their vows as a twister loomed in the distance.
Video of the wedding for Caleb and Candra Pence has generated more than 20,000 views on YouTube. The footage was captured by the groom's uncle and shows the couple and their guests seemingly unconcerned as a pair of tornadoes swirl on the flat land behind them, some 10 miles off in the distance.
The National Weather Service says the twister packed winds of at least 138 mph and ripped up a farm and wind turbines.
Caleb Pence says he was so focused on marrying his wife that the storm was the least of his concerns.
