Storm Chasers

About the show

Anyone who has seen "The Wizard of Oz" knows that an oncoming tornado is nothing to trifle with, but "extreme filmmaker" Sean Casey takes viewers right into the heart of Tornado Alley and inside the storms themselves to capture valuable research data and unprecedented footage.

Dedication

Dr. Josh Wurman of the VORTEX2 project is no longer allowed to provide guidance to the TIV2 team, leading Sean Casey to hand over more navigation control to his meteorologists. Under Matt Hughes' guidance, TIV2 intercepts one of its best tornadoes ever. This is the last episode to feature TIV2 navigator Matt Hughes who died on May 26, 2010 of an "injury unrelated to storm chasing". The episode is dedicated to him.

Perfect Storm

When a massive storm cell threatens to strike South Dakota, the storm chasing teams travel the state's highways in hopes of witnessing powerful tornadoes, and their wish is granted when the storm spawns a series of twisters. Sean is devastated when Dr. Wurman recommends that TIV2 be sent home. Meanwhile, all three teams of storm chasers surround the slow moving EF4 Bowdle tornado as it demolishes farms and transmission towers.

Twister Twilight Zone

Reed is so excited to use his new probe cannon that he has trouble perfecting his aim when he's confronted with a series of tornadoes. While he does succeed in getting a probe into a tornado, the tornado carries the probe too far and the team is unable to retrieve it. While Tim is away, the TWISTEX team weathers some strange atmospheric occurrences in South Dakota and gets pinned between two violent twisters but get out safely. Sean and Josh Wurman agree that TIV2 may continue operating, but only if it maintains a 75-mile distance from VORTEX2, which leads to frustration when both teams target the same storms with VORTEX2 actually switching storms to Sean's after taking one storm, forcing Sean's team to back off when they had a good chance at an intercept.

Judgement Day

Storm and chasers collide in Minnesota for a final showdown. Sean's team gets a break as VORTEX2 calls off all operations for the day leading to no conflict between the teams. TIV2 breaks down early on, but luckily the garage they stop at has the part they need and it is repaired quickly. As a ferocious EF-4 twister targets the town of Wadena, Minnesota, one team finds themselves in the wrong place at the right time, and Sean's trial by fire becomes a race to save others. Dominator succeeds in intercepting the tornado and gets probes into it, but TIV2 fails to intercept while TWISTEX is too far away. Wadena is demolished and Sean's team is in the middle of town as it happens and in the aftermath both Sean's team and Tim's do their best to save lives.

Opening Pursuits

In the beginning of the show, the science team, led by Joshua Wurman, and the TIV team, led by IMAX filmmaker Sean Casey, are displayed and new technologies are explained. Sean explains how he has tried to gain an IMAX shot from inside a tornado for the past eight years. As the chase season starts, the TIV attempts to intercept a supercell near Hereford, Texas, before hearing that an EF2 rated tornado has hit Tulia, Texas. The TIV then tries to intercept a tornado at night (without filming) and succeeds near Stafford, Kansas.

A Dangerous Ride

The Storm Chasing team is chasing again after a slow period in the eight-week tornado season. The team is chasing in the Texas Panhandle where a monster supercell threatens the TIV team as they try to intercept the cell. The team misses and chases into Kansas, where a supercell explodes producing multiple tornadoes near Protection, Kansas. Once again, however, the team fails to intercept the storm.

Tornado Aftermath

As the teams try to chase a supercell near La Crosse, Kansas, they hear that an EF5 tornado has struck the town of Greensburg, Kansas (the first tornado in eight years to be given this rating). Before this happened the team chased a cluster of storms in South Dakota. At the same time, Howie Bluestine manages to intercept a cell near Woodward, Oklahoma. Sean and Josh hear about the Greensburg tornado while in Hays, Kansas after a long and costly chase day.
