A video of a Texas driver getting caught in a tornado and escaping has begun to go viral on social media after the state was hit with twisters on Monday.

The video, which can be seen here, was filmed in Elgin and so far has over 1 million views.

"Omg...just going through my video. This is a story about a red truck and a tornado. I cannot believe they drove away like that," the caption of the video stated.

The video shows a person in a truck getting caught up in the swirl of a tornado and the vehicle repeatedly get spun while it is on its side.

The truck eventually gets flipped back upright and the driver then continues to drive down the road.

It is one of many clips showing citizens dealing with destructive tornadoes. Videos of residents fleeing from tornadoes and attempting to withstand them have also begun circulating on social media.

Another dramatic video showed people running into a Round Rock Walmart while a tornado rips through a parking lot in the background. The video, seen here, has so far been viewed over 325,000 times on Twitter.

"Tornado at Round Rock Walmart. I don't get paid enough for this s***," Twitter user SteelAtomic wrote as a caption.

In the video, debris can be seen swirling around the tornado with some cars attempting to drive away from the area.

The person recording the video ushers people into the store as they stand in the Walmart doorway. The people in the video also spot a car that has been turned on its side in the distance and continue to shout at people to run.

The person recording then tells people to get away from the windows as they move deeper into the Walmart.

Videos from other areas in Round Rock have also gone viral on social media.

A video posted by Scott McClellan showed a tornado crossing over Interstate 35 in Round Rock. They also said that the interstate was packed at the time. The video, which can be viewed here, has so far been viewed over 500,000 times on Twitter.
