ELMER, Okla. – Storm chasers capture video of cows ignoring a nearby tornado Saturday as several tornadoes tore through western and central Oklahoma. The storms damaged several barns, trees and buildings in western Oklahoma, according to KFOR.

Fortunately, emergency crews say there were no serious injuries reported in relation to the storms.

In fact, EMSA officials say they did not respond to a single injury related to the tornadoes or storms as they were moving through the state.

The most memorable sight from Saturday was captured by a storm chaser in Elmer. Dick McGowan and Shay Philips captured a tornado as it crossed Hwy 283.

Several cows had a close encounter with Mother Nature, but seemed pretty oblivious to their surroundings.

In case you were wondering, we’re told the cows were not injured during the storm.
