ELLAVILLE, GA (WALB) -

A man outside Ellaville, just north of Americus, captured what appears to be a tornado all on video.

 It's not confirmed if it was in fact a tornado.

Jason Frazier and his co-worker left work early because of the storms. 

Around 12:35 p.m., he pulled over along Highway 26. 

That's where he saw what he said looked like a funnel cloud forming. 

Frazier said he had told his co-workers earlier he had never actually seen a tornado before. 

Now, he said he's satisfied. 

He said it was amazing watching mother nature take its course. 

"I still am completely amazed that it was there," said Frazier. "It was something that you only see once I guess. It was neat."

Frazier said he followed it all the way to Ellaville where his daughter lives. 

He said she is okay. 

Her house was brushed by the storm.
