Career as a Storm Chaser

A big fan of storms and tornados, Reed filmed his first Tornado in the May of 1998, which was a huge F5 tornado. After he completed his Bachelors level, he thought about doing his Master’s in the same institute. After completing that, he was reported to be doing his PhD in the same filed and same university in 2007. Reed is an American citizen by birth and follows Christianity as his religion. He belongs to white ethnicity. After he completed his studies, Reed began his career by filming more tornados. Known as the “Storm Chaser”, he has been all over North America, from Canadian seas to Mexican lands and has captured more than 200 tornados and storms. When asked about his childhood encounter with the big snow ball, he said in an interview “Of course that is where all this started from. Ann yeah, I try not to get caught in them. It’d break my camera, again”.

The Tonardo Chasers Show

After capturing enough tornadoes, Reed finally integrated the footages in a web hosted site which is http://tornadovideos.net/. Here, you can view the tornadoes and storms that Reed has captured and encountered. His TV show Tornado Chasers is also very popular in the network and has made him popular in other parts of the world. In the 1st season of the show, he was following a TVN tornado (300 pounder) which was moving towards the state of Kansas. In that chase, Reed captured a HD footage of the storm, from the inside of its circulation.

A death defying act, people were shocked when they saw the footages. Later, he made the task even more hard and challenging by developing such a vehicle that could follow the tornado from up close. His new ride TVN Dominator, is a well-equipped armed and sophisticated machine which has got an external radar to measure the pressure of wind that is exerted by the base of a tornado. The vehicle has been stronger this year after the military-grade Rhino lining was added to its exterior. Reed has also changed the windows and the overall shape of the car. Having to deal with such natural fury at all times, Reed and his team are prepared with the best that is available.
