Dash Cammer Captures Dangerous Vietnam Tornado

Screen grab of tornado blowing away buildings
in a July 28 tornado.  
In the video in this post, a person with a dash cam captures a tornado in Vietnam that is truly scary.

It doesn't look like the tornado is particularly strong, as tornados go, but the building construction is flimsy.

Which means sharp sheet metal and other scary debris slices through traffic, and most ominiously, motorcyclists desperately trying to escape the twister.

Miraculously, nobody was seriously hurt, says several reports.

If I had to guess, I'd say the tornado was an EF1 on a scale of zero to five, with five being the strongest. An EF1 tornado has winds of 73 to 112 mph. 

EF1 tornadoes typically don't flatten well constructed structures, but the buildings its hitting in this video don't look solidly built.

Here's the frightening video:
