A drone was able to capture the aftermath of the tornado that ripped through Barron County on Tuesday night.

Branden Bodendorfer took the video, and posted it to his YouTube page. Check out the stunning video above.

The tornado killed one man, 46-year-old Eric Gavin,  as it tore through the Prairie Lake Estates Mobile Home Park near Chetek.

The tornado destroyed over 50 trailer homes, and injured 25 people. It reportedly touched down in five states: Kansas, Nebraska, Texas, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin.

Barron County Sheriff Christopher Fitzgerald praised the efforts of the first responders, saying that the responders left their own storm-damaged homes to help search the mobile home park.
