WASHINGTON, Ill. -- One Washington man's tornado video has gone viral, but not because of the view of the tornado.

Anthony Khoury and his family were in their home at the time the EF-4 tornado hit on November 17th.

His dad thought he heard a helicopter but quickly saw the tornado outside.

Khoury and his family went down to the basement where he filmed the tornado as they all prayed.

The family says they were all shocked at the amount of attention the video has received.

"It was a shock to me and the family, but we're really happy about it because you know obviously I was praying in the video and I am glad to glorify God in that way," said Anthony Khoury.

The video has since been viewed by over one-thousand people on YouTube.
