The twister’s historic power and erratic path left people in vehicles little to no chance of survival.

Especially storm chasers, (watch):

The tornado was 2.6 miles wide, on the ground for 40 minutes and delivered winds exceeding 250 mph, per The National Weather Service.

Storm chasers, even the “experts,” became part of history.
