A surveillance camera in an Americus, Ga., hospital that was hit last week by a violent tornado captured images of the twister as it approached and swept through a building.

"The building was shaking and everything was rattling everything in the room. And I just prayed man. I called on the Lord, and God kept us and protected us," said Michael Coley, who was inside the hospital when the tornado hit.
