MOORE, Okla. - We all watched incredible images of Wednesday's storm as it spun over Moore.

"It was very reminiscent of May 20th, seeing it come, the wall cloud lowering," Max Broderick said.

The storm struck the same neighborhood that was hit almost two years ago by a massive twister.

"We live in Oklahoma, tornadoes happen. This has just been our decade in Moore," Broderick said.

Max shot video of Wednesday's storm over his neighborhood.

His house backs up to Plaza Towers Elementary School and was destroyed May 20, 2013, along with his entire neighborhood.

He shot video of that storm too as he, his wife and their then 4-week-old little girl drove to safety.

"There was a lot of confusion, a lot of people driving everywhere, cars going every which direction," he said.

He does not recommend getting in a car and driving during a storm.

However, he believes that is what kept his family safe on May 20.

On Wednesday, Max was just feet away from his new home and his new storm shelter as he watched this most recent storm spin overhead.

"Getting to see it is pretty amazing, the tornado itself, not the destruction or devastation," he said.

While unnerving to watch, Max says his family had no plans to leave this community.

"This house was built in 1977 the first time. It made it almost 40 years without being destroyed by a tornado. I don't see why it can't make it another 40 years or longer," Max said.
