    The Tornado Chase; June 5th, 2013 by Erin Jones


    [​IMG]

    The following is a guest post from Erin Jones (pictured above), the scientific outreach lead for the Global Modeling and Assimilation Office at Goddard Space Flight Center. As a graduate student at Purdue University, she used to chase tornadoes.
    June 2, 2013, started as most Sundays do. My alarm went off; I got out of bed; I came downstairs, and I turned on my computer. I logged on to facebook. A quick look at my news feed told me that this Sunday would not be the same as most Sundays:
    Getting lots of rumors that veteran chasers were killed by the El Reno tornado. I really hope this is not real.
    … just received the news of the possible passing of Tim, Carl and Paul. We are in total shock… God rest their souls if this is true.
    Hopes that messages about Tim Samaras are not true… Bad news if this is true…
    I put my hand to my chest.
    “No.”
    The rumors were true. Tim Samaras, his son Paul, and his chase partner Carl Young were gone. They had been killed while chasing a storm on May 31 near El Reno, Oklahoma, when a large tornado hit their car and reduced it to scrap metal.
    I was in shock.

    Video interessante que mostra o posicionamento do "chasers" relativamente ao tornado. Muitos andaram ali mesmo "perto demais"!
