Caught on tape: Tornado rips locked door open

An amazing caught on tape shows the strength of last weekend's tornado in the small town of Rayne, La.

Security video from a local pharmacy shows customers backing away from a glass door, some running, as wind gusts grow stronger.

Then, the power goes out.

Within a few minutes, the front door, which was locked and bolted, can be seen swinging open.

The tornado, packed with 120 mph winds, left a trail of destruction that was five miles long and as wide as three football fields.
