Teen Keeps Playing Fortnite As Real Tornado Closes In

As a terrible tornado ripped through parts of Greensboro, North Carolina this week–bringing trees down and uprooting entire houses–a teenager just kept playing Fortnite trying to get a win. Teenager Anton Williams spoke to local news outlet WXII 12 about the scary event.

“I was sitting at home and I was playing Fortnite, and all of sudden, I hear a bunch of noise,” Williams said. “I look out the window and I started seeing the roof come off the houses in front of me.” As you can see in the video, an entire home shifted off of its foundation due to the extremely high winds, which apparently hit more than 135 mph.

Williams added that he wanted to keep playing instead of seeking shelter because he was among the final players in his Fortnite match. But when the storm worsened (in real life), Williams did the smart thing and hunkered down with his sister and nephew.

“I sit back down because I only have a couple people left in my game, and I was going to try to finish the game, but then it started getting worse and I started to see the power lines come down, so I told my sister and my nephew to come to the bathroom,” he said.

Asked what he was thinking about during this perilous time, Williams said he couldn’t get his mind off Fortnite. “Honestly, I was thinking about the game, but I was hoping everybody was OK around me,” he said.

According to GameSpot sister site CBS News, local authorities declared a state of emergency in Greensboro, while police said there was one death related to the storm. Thousands were apparently left without power, while some roads were made inaccessible due to fallen trees.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
