Editorial Reviews

Storm Chasers Greatest Storms
A Storm Chasers special event, features the all-time most intense chases in Storm Chasers history. Extreme chasers Reed Timmer and Joel Taylor, IMAX Filmmaker Sean Casey, and renowned meteorologist Dr. Josh Wurman describe their most dangerous and exciting moments ever, including getting up close to tornados, harrowing night intercepts, baseball sized hail, lightning, flying debris, accidents and downright devastation.

Science of Storm Chasing
Episode 1
Meteorologist Dr. Josh Wurman guides his team of storm chasers into the world's tornado epicenter to gather new and unique data about nature's most mystifying storms. His goal is to advance tornado science by sending his scientific instruments into the heart of a twister. If his team can successfully penetrate the core of a tornado, the information they gather may help improve forecasting, prevent millions of dollars in damage, and save lives. In this episode, we investigate the science that drives Josh's 3 main data-collecting vehicles: The DOW, a truck toting a portable Doppler radar that gathers wind speed data from the vicinity of a tornado. The probes - scientific instruments that team members drop into the path of a tornado, and the TIV - a one-of-a-kind tornado intercept vehicle that filmmaker Sean Casey intends to drive into the center of a twister. If Josh can get his scientific instruments into the heart of a tornado, he'll gather scientific data unlike any ever recorded.
Episode 2
Meteorologist Dr. Josh Wurman and his team are chasing storms on a mission to acquire rare scientific information about tornados. Sometimes this means scientifically analyzing the horrific damage tornados leave in their wake. Josh and his team visit Tulia, Texas, where a moderate-strength tornado left considerable damage, and Greensburg, Kansas, where the biggest tornado to strike in 8 years leveled a town in a matter of minutes. Josh finds scientific clues hidden among the wreckage that, combined with the unique data he gathers while chasing, may help him solve the mystery behind tornado formation, and prevent death and destruction in the future.

I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my sister who is into this type of activity. You would have thought she won the lottery. She loved this item. It is my understanding that this item is well appreciated by storm chaser fans.

This is a small compilation of the biggest storms that Josh and Sean and Reed were on before being joined by Tim Samaras. V2 was just getting started at this time and Sean was in TIV1. Still, it is quite compelling to watch, and the bonuses were nice. This makes a nice edition to the series as it does have some nice odds and ends not mentioned in the main series, and the storm videos are definitely worth a look and there is a little less squabbling going on here, as well as one incident where the V2 group had to try to escape one storm they had gotten too close to and it chased them instead.

I ordered this to use with a weather unit at school. Unfortunately too much cursing and bleeping out so i was a little disappointed. Otherwise a good dvd for an adult storm lover

I purchased the entire series of these DVD's; each of the 5 seasons. I enjoy them - informative and fast action. I am a weather buff so I do enjoy the weather information you learn when watching these DVDs.

i haven't gotten this movie yet. this guy is insane lol. he never gives up on going on these dangerous quests for looking for dangerous tornados in kansas and texas lol. and so he hears on the weather updates in texas, and then hears if there are any tornado warnings coming up, and then starts going onto these dangerous journeys looking for dangerous tornados. i recommend this movie to everyone to watch , it's good to learn about these dangerous twisters, that hits certain areas in texas and kansas lol.
