The video was indeed shot on the west side of the building. The first shot is from google maps. The second is a bird's eye view from bing maps showing the approximate location of their apartment. The last is from google street view. The trees are likely along 27th street just east of 10th. The perceived proximity to the building in the foreground is a foreshortening illusion likely caused by having the camera zoomed in a bit. The trees are actually much taller than they look in the video, it's just that they're about 200 yards away.I can't figure out where they shot that video. Nothing in the aerial imagery lines up with what shows up in the video. Makes me think either they didn't name the correct location in the vid clip, or the aerial photos are really old, which I doubt. In the video we can see a small building with a bunch of trees immediately behind it to the southwest. The aerial imagery shows no such building with trees immediately southwest of it like what shows up in the video. The video would have had to be shot on the west side of the apartment complex by the orientation of the vehicles and the approach angle of the tornado.
