But this potentially life-threatening storm didn't stop two high school sweethearts from snapping a couple of pictures on Saturday before heading off to prom.


Charlie Bator, 18, and Ali Marintzer, 15, told ABC News they were taking prom photos at Marintzer's home on Saturday when a siren went off. When the alarm ended, the couple went outside and saw the twister in the distance.

"I knew they'd be safe," she said. "They went on to the prom and had a fabulous night."
