Oklahoma Storm Chaser Brandon Copic: "This is the first time I can actually say I feared for my life"

As weather forecasters reported on the arrival of four different tornadoes in Oklahoma, on Friday evening Piers Morgan hosted a live hour dedicated entirely to sharing the latest developments from a state still reeling from the last natural disaster.

Joining "Piers Morgan Live" via telephone, Storm Chaser Brandon Copic offered his first-hand perspective and insight on the incoming twister:

"This is a very powerful storm. I've been chasing for about four to five years now and I haven't seen anything like it," he revealed. "This is the first time I can actually say I feared for my life when the tornado was coming towards me."

Less than two weeks since Moore, Okla. was ravaged by the last tornado, Copic reported that the small Oklahoma town is in harms way once again:

"I can not confirm on any sort of cars being flipped or any, I can't confirm factual damage because we are right on a previous tornado path of damage," he explained. "I can't figure out if that is previous damage or if that was current damage."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then stay with CNN on television and for the most up-to-date coverage of the Oklahoma tornadoes.

    This type of storm scares the hell out of me as well. I would have been terrified!
