This is a sad story. I was watching this all unfold on the weather channel the other night as those insane super cell storms tore through OKC yet
At least two storm chasing crews took a direct hit by tornados that night and this really demonstrates how dangerous these storms are. If I am not
mistaken, both crews were hit by satellite tornados. Multiple vortexes.
One crew had two of their three vehicles thrown through the air more than 200 meters leaving them all to get into a now crippled (windshield wipers
were tore off) vehicle to outrun the storms. They had to core punch (drive into the core of another storm) to outrun yet another twister at 20mph.
This must have been terrifying.
This crew though, they didn't really talk about on air and at the time I wondered why. Turns out that they all died.
These storm chasers are under appreciated. They perform a very dangerous service to all people who may find themselves in the path of these storms and
they are unsung heroes in my book.
