Stunning footage posted online appears to show the absolutely terrifying moments a tornado approached Waterford City, North Dakota — and then briefly stood still, spinning adjacent next to a man recording the drama unfold.
"Dude, where do we go?" one of the individuals in the video can be heard saying as the tornado approaches. "We have nowhere to go."

The video captures the duo desperately seeking shelter in a pickup truck, watching in awe and sheer horror as they watch the destructive storm inches closer.
"Oh s***" one of them says.
Footage then shows the tornado, which the National Weather Service said damaged over a dozen homes, spin through the trailer park, eventually standing stationary for a few brief moments next to the two.
"Oh my gosh, dude. It's just sitting there!" one of the individuals says.
Another video posted late Monday night also appeared to capture a tornado rip through North Dakota.
