Terrifying video shows shoppers fleeing a tornado at Walmart in Texas

Terrifying video has captured the moment a tornado ripped through a Walmart parking lot in Texas – as a man yells at terrified shoppers to rush into the store to avoid flying debris.

“Enter! Enter! Run! Run! Run!” the man shouts at the entrance to the Walmart in Round Rock, a town near Austin, as the tornado erupted Monday night. “Stay away from windows.”

The thrilling images was posted on Twitter by James Watson, a Walmart store employee.

A woman has also posted images of her bleeding legs after the heartbreaking experience.

“I just got dragged through the MF WALMART parking lot BY A TORNADO BITCH!!!!!” she wrote.

The tornado was one of several tornadoes that swept through Texas and Oklahoma, injuring at least four people in the town of Elgin, east of Austin, USA Today reported.

A tornado touched down in Luling, between Austin and San Antonio, and another massive one hit an area east of Round Rock near Taylor, according to the National Weather Service.

Meanwhile, two schools in Jacksboro, just outside of Dallas, were badly damaged when a tornado erupted around 4 p.m. Monday, Fox 26 Houston reported.

Jacksboro High School principal Starla Sanders said the roof of her home was ripped off.

“It just brought tears to my eyes. I’ve lived there for 15 years and I love this place. It’s tough,” she told the outlet.

“I didn’t see, but I heard that my house had no roof. My children are safe, my husband is safe, and all students are safe. This is what is important.

In Oklahoma, a quarter-mile-wide tornado reportedly hit the southern city of Kingston around 6:30 p.m., creating a path of destruction nearly 1,300 feet long.
