Plot & Details
Take a wild ride into the heart of Tornado Alley as Storm Chasers star Sean Casey embarks on a quest to gather the most accurate and comprehensive severe weather data ever by driving directly into the epicenter of the storm as everyone else in the region runs for cover. Casey knows that if he can somehow capture the birth of a tornado on camera, the resulting data could give scientists a greater understanding of exactly how these ultra-destructive storms are formed. And the only way to learn the information he seeks is to venture directly in the danger zone. Together with the researchers of VORTEX 2, Casey loads up his 70 mm camera and highly advanced weather measurement instruments, and takes his seat in a custom-made vehicle designed to endure some of the most extreme weather conditions known to man. Now, if they can just manage to be in the right place at the right time, the information they gather could prove invaluable in understanding the true power of Mother Nature's wrath.
