Episode 6

This week on Weather Geeks we mark the 5 year anniversary of the largest tornado ever recorded…the 2013 El Reno tornado. We’ll discuss how unusual the tornado was and how it changed or didn’t change the way people chase and research storms today. The Weather Channel’s Mike Bettes, who has a heart pounding story of being tossed around by the tornado, kicks off the conversation. We are also joined by author Brantley Hargrove, who’s new book, The Man Who Caught the Storm, chronicles the life of legendary storm chaser, Tim Samaras. Tim was one of 8 people that lost their life due to the tornado. Stories of intrigue, reflection and scientific discussion, all on this episode of Weather Geeks.
