Inside A Tornado

Recommended Posts

Guest Mike

It's a technological first. A well-placed probe fitted with 7 video cameras—6 with a 60-degree field-of-view designed to achieve a full 360-degree field-of-view (one failed during deployment, resulting in a 300-degree field-of-view) and one pointing upward—captures footage inside a tornado, providing visual data on ground wind speeds where the storm does the greatest damage. And Tim Samaras with his team of storm chasers are there to make it happen.

I heard the news about the tragedy that hit the town of Parkersburg, IA today in the form of a tornado. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in Parkersburg. I stopped in this town many a time in my youth, since I grew up in Cedar Falls. Cherish everyday that you have because you never know when something like this can change your life completely. The meaning of Rolling Thunder really made me think about it.
