Lurch took some video of not only tornadoes touching the ground, but some behind the scenes footage of the damage they cause, how the Storm Chasers team determine how big a storm cell will be and a tour of “The Dominator,” Reed Timmer’s tornado-proof ride.
Here’s Lurch interviewing Reed Timmer. Timmer explains what specific weather patterns make for the bigger, more violent tornadoes and why he thinks today’s storms are going to be off the charts.
Lurch is showing off what the Storm Chasers ride in while getting close to tornadoes. Their truck has been reinforced with steel and is called “The Dominator.” It can withstand winds up to 150 mph.
It may be thrilling to chase these memorizing twisters, but this video reminds us of how powerful the winds are and how much potential damage a tornado can do to a town.
