Battling high winds and blowing dust, cinematographer and storm chaser Martin Lisius captured the first-ever 3D tornado footage this week in Nebraska. In all, Lisius managed to capture and photograph three tornadoes which were spawned by a potent storm system that tracked across the Plains on Monday. The most significant tornado lasted 20 minutes and derailed a train and caused damage to area farms. In addition to the tornadoes, Lisius shot 3D footage of supercell thunderstorms, downpours and dramatic lightning this spring.
