Synopsis

World-renowned storm chaser Reed Timmer faces some of the most destructive tornadoes in history in this groundbreaking documentary series. Featuring beautiful and rare weather footage, Tornado Chasers lets you experience the intense fury of tornadoes.

When quiet skies give way to fearsome storms, Reed must deal with increasingly violent tornadoes that strike populated areas. Prepared with his fleet of armored “Dominator” vehicles, Reed assembles his chase team and partners with television networks to deliver live warnings. Celebrity meteorologists, such as Jim Cantore and Ginger Zee, join Reed in Oklahoma to relay tornado reports across the United States. Known for his extreme and controversial style of storm chasing, Reed attempts to drive his Dominators directly into tornadoes.
