We have photographed and filmed over 50 tornadoes. Everything from stove pipes, to ropes and wedges. From March to July, we're usually on the road. We help offset the expenses of storm chasing by taking people with us on Extreme Storm Chasing Tours. Our tours are unique because we only take 2 people at a time. This makes our tours perfect for couples, photographers, meteorological students, the media, and future storm chasers who want to be involved in the chase.

Last year was a slow year for tornadoes. With only 16 Tornadoes in 2014, Oklahoma set a record for the fewest tornadoes in a single year (since the National Weather Service began keeping track). This was not that surprising to most chasers, since 2013 was an awful year for Oklahoma, where 82 twisters touched down. (In 2011, 119 tornadoes were officially reported in Oklahoma.)

Back to 2013: On May 20, 2013, an EF-5 tornado (the strongest there is) struck Moore, Oklahoma killing 25 people and injuring 377 others, causing over $2,000,000,000 in damages. Just 11 days later on May 31, 2013, an EF-3 tornado struck near El Reno Oklahoma, killing 8 and injuring 151 others. The National Weather Service referred to this tornado as "the most dangerous tornado in storm observing history." This tornado also claimed the lives of 3 members of the TWISTEX team: Tim Samaras, his son Paul Samaras, and colleague Carl Young. Every chaser has studied the events of that day in order to ensure that we don't make the same mistakes that the TWISTEX team made, namely underestimating what a tornado is capable of, and thus miscalculating the "safe zone".
