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.

Not In Kansas Anymore

Reed, Tim, and Sean encounter the strongest tornado conditions of the season. Two strong risk areas have developed over Colorado and in Northeast Kansas. All three teams decide to pursue the eastern event as it crosses from Kansas into Missouri. Each team's efforts to keep up with a developing supercell are hampered by road-clogging scores of amateur chase vehicles all trying to get a glimpse of the same storm but the storm did not form a tornado. Adding insult to injury, Tony is stunned to learn that a strong tornado has struck his and Tim's hometown of Bennett, Colorado (a result of the western storm system they had chosen to ignore that day). Frustrated and exhausted, TWISTEX decides to chase a low-risk event in Western Kansas the following day, and manages a successful intercept.

Fight Or Flight

Reed and Sean chase in central Kansas, and successfully encounter a developing supercell. Sean is in perfect position to intercept, but both he and the Doghouse have difficulty finding the tornado as it becomes cloaked in precipitation. Reed relishes the opportunity to launch his $30,000 remote-control airplane, which successfully deploys three parachute probes into the tornado inflow, gathering vital data. However, Reed quickly finds himself in a vulnerable position when the tornado begins to take an erratic path and doubles back on itself (and the Dominator).

Sean Casey At The Bat

Sean returns chasing with his old chase partner, Dr. Josh Wurman and his new giant project, VORTEX2 and DOW7. In Wyoming, TIV2 intercepts an EF3 tornado, and Sean gets the shot of the tornado coming directly in his direction and impacting the TIV, the shot he chased by ten years. Meanwhile, Reed follows the same storm. He drives into hail storms and the Dominator temporarily gets stuck in the mud.

Meanwhile, Tim's team has their own close encounter as they deploy probes in the last chase of the year. Having ended their chasing season in the previous episode, Sean Casey and his team are absent from this episode.

Highway To Hail

Reed steps up his science to take on Dr. Josh Wurman's massive research project. However, when his decision to mount a small radar on his vehicle threatens to interfere with Dr. Wurman's project, tensions between the two rise. TVN's driver Joel Taylor has second thoughts about chasing with the team, when his and Reed's relationship becomes strained. With his much improved TIV2 finally out of the shop, Sean is feeling confident and happy to rejoin his old chasing partner, Dr. Wurman and his new VORTEX2 project. However, when Dr. Wurman seem less than thrilled to see Sean, and makes it clear that getting TIV2 inside a tornado is no longer high on his list of priorities, Sean is somewhat offended, and decides to resume chasing alone with Doghouse, at least temporarily.

Inside The Tornado!

TIV2 suffers another mechanical failure, leaving Sean Casey on the sidelines. Joel Taylor decides not to chase with Reed and instead joins the SCOUT team of Danny Cheresnick and Aaron Ruppert on a chase in Oklahoma.

Nearby, the TWISTEX team has close encounters with the same storm system.Also joining the TVN team is a guy named Hank Reinhardt.
