It's been a year of historic and tragic loss, unimaginable damage and an earth-shattering reminder of nature's force and power. Now get the whole story on this year's record-setting tornados as STORM CHASERS returns. Extreme meteorologist Reed Timmer, IMAX filmmaker Sean Casey and veteran chaser Tim Samaras are back tracking the monster tornados that made headlines this past spring storm season. The teams combine never-before-seen footage with meteorological expertise and years of chasing experience to tell the story of the seasons' most violent storms, including the infamous tornado outbreak of April 27, 2011 when nearly 200 tornados were recorded and over 300 lives lost in a single day.
The new season of STORM CHASERS fe
atures new chase vehicles including Timmer's "Dominator 2" and cutting-edge research tools such as sophisticated radar equipment and air cannons. Casey, having completed his IMAX film, Tornado Alley, is attempting another storm chasing first: filming tornados in 3D. And TWISTEX's newly revamped chase vehicle has all the bells and whistles with new doppler radar and probes. The race is on to learn more about these monsters of Mother Nature, improve early warning systems and save lives.
