(WTVR) - A tornado rips through Mobile Alabama Christmas day, the whole thing caught on camera.

This surveillance video shows the twister coming through near a Walgreens store moving around cars and sparks flying from power lines.

The store's manager Josh Holman says things are back to normal at the Walgreens today except the building doors are boarded up.

"I was just thankful I was alive because if it had been a hundred yards the other way it would have ripped through the middle of the store", said Holman

He also says he's glad no one was seriously hurt.

The National Weather Service says the tornado that hit mobile had winds up to 135 miles per hour.
