    Re: Stormchasing Confusão no ar...

    Parece que o blog foi colocado offline...

    E entretanto já houve troca amigável de emails com o Reed...

    Entretanto soube-se que morreu outro chaser na 6ªfeira, este amador, enviou uma foto do tornado a um amigo e morreu instantes depois.

    Também encontrei este que me despertou curiosidade pois foi na empresa aonde o nosso forista Lightning andou o ano passado, também apanharam um susto com a rapidez com que tudo se formou e mudou de direcção, mas felizmente tinham a rota de fuga desimpedida

    O Link que postei ontem era de acusações bem forte de Warren Faidley a Reed Timmer e ao Weather Channel sobre a forma sem “escrúpulos” como fazem as caçadas, a forma como conseguem lucros e muitas outras acusações que só mesmo vendo, pois tratava-se de um artigo bem grande…

    Li por alto já que era em inglês, mas a verdade é que a pagina ficou OFF pois muita informação menos própria foi ali publicada e que se calhar ele mesmo foi “obrigada” a retira-la pois a mesma pareceu-me ser mesmo casa do polícia. …

    Não sei se alguém aqui do Fórum conseguiu ler o artigo mas era mt interessante

    Pena não ter feito um copy & paste…:(

    Lucros???? Jogar a vida numa "mão" é valente. Parada alta. As companhias de Seguros sabem, efectivamente, onde pode chegar um Meteolouco? Não sei bem se a questão é "lucro" :unsure:

    Call by Responsible Storm Chasers to Ban Reed Timmer Chasing Antics
    (Posted on June 3, 2013 by warr1265)

    It must be hell or heaven for Reed Timmer right now.

    After promotion “getting to close” to violent tornadoes for the past seven years, he’s now facing a new kind of storm. Not only has the subject of “getting too close for no real purpose” become big news, he just lost several friends. Let’s hope to God he uses this heartbreaking moment to retire from inspiring others to follow his footsteps. But judging by his past ego-maniac, money making behavior, I’ll bet he finds a way to capitalize off this horrific event. Sick, but you mark my words.
    There is a growing number of storm chasers who are asking for public and media retaliation against storm chaser Reed Timmer following the tragic events in El Reno, Oklahoma on June 1, 2013. Blog sites and discussion groups have come alive with complaints and in some instances harsh accusations regarding Timmer and the way he chases, in which many find to be reckless and deceptively reasoned.
    Many found Timmers bragging about losing the hood to the Dominator after the El Reno tornado an insult. What kind of person braggs about losing parts of a car to a tornado — when a tornado just killed your friends? One might say Timmer’s protective bubble of carefully crafted public relations is finally being questioned.
    Timmer, the storm chaser who ordained himself an “Idiot” after he purposely drive his car into a Nebraska tornado and nearly lost an eye, is under heavy fire following the tragic events near El Reno, Oklahoma that killed three storm chasers and injured three others. Timmer, known for his drama and shrill screams near tornadoes, is considered by many to be a major source of inspiration for “getting too close to tornadoes.”
    Timmer, who claims to be a “scientist” out saving lives, appears to be more interested in You Tube, money making ventures. He recently raised over $130.00 through social media to fund a new (for profit and self-promotion) production. Ironically, he chose to use the money to make money instead of devoting the funds solely for science and public safety. Oh, and there is the new “Dominator.” A costly eye-catching gimmick no doubt. Even The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore got wood when he saw it.
    There is no evidence I’m aware of that Timmer has ever produced a peer-reviewed, scientific achievement and some believe his claims of getting close for “science” are only a cover to legitimize his money making productions. These events should also raise an eyebrow with sponsors who have been supporting Timmer for years, including Bosch. In fact, Bosch recently ran a commercial that shows Timmer guiding a driver speeding away from a tornado instead of taking shelter. At one point, they have to swerve to avoid a woman with a baby carriage. For a company that sells auto parts, this was pure PR stupidity.
    The Weather Channel recently joined forces and promoted Timmer’s activities when meteorologist Jim Cantore teamed up with Timmer. On May 19, the duo drove dangerously close to a tornado near Edmond, OK. Ironically, during the El Reno tornado, Weather Channel host Mike Bettes was nearly killed when their “Tornado Hunt” vehicle was swept off highway 81 by the same tornado that killed scientific chaser Tim Samparas. One can draw their own conclusions as to the inspiration, but there is little doubt that reckless activity breeds reckless activity.
    I would support other chasers, spotter and storm-related professionals to call for a media ban on Timmer to prevent further promotion of dangerous storm chasing, no matter what the purpose, legitimate or not. In addition, Timmer should “dismantle” his Dominator and return all money raised for his “production” in light of the recent tragedies.
    Of course, this will never happen and more chasers will die. Trust me on this.

    Warren

    Como já referiram, foi classificado como EF5 e chegou a ter um diâmetro de 4,2km, no que deverá ser um dos mais largos já registado. É contudo importante referir que no passado não havia os meios que existem hoje.

    Talvez uma das explicações para pessoas tão experientes terem sido apanhadas ? Isso e aqueles vortices a saltar de todo o lado ? Estes tornados muito grandes parecem ser um mundo meio à parte.
