There were three. Just slamming the money making part I think. I am more sure they died tempting fate. Nobody loves to get killed by a tornado. The trick is getting as close as possible without getting killed.

I get that. Collecting radar data and placing sensors in the damage path.

The other part about getting inside the tornado? This happened recently, right? They think they are indestructible inside their specialized vehicles...they been doing this for a while. They call it an "intercept". Where they time the passage of a funnel over a road so they can "join with it".
