Opening Pursuits Summary

On the first chase, Sean, Josh and the rest of the team follow a cell that doesn't produce, missing the first tornado of the season that hits Tulia, Texas, and destroys the town. A week later weather signs rouse them early one day and they chase for hours but find nothing. Near twilight they find a storm and race to it, but last-minute adjustments cause the TIV to miss interception. Sean is ready to call it a day when Josh spots another storm near their location. It's too dark to shoot IMAX footage but the TIV team conducts a successful intercept and the scientists are thrilled with the data. But the season has only just begun.

Storm Chasers Show Summary

Research meteorologist Josh Wurman has teamed up with extreme filmmaker Sean Casey to form an amazing partnership. They both share the goal of intercepting a tornado, but for entirely different reasons. Josh needs an individual who can carry his scientific instruments into the vortex of a tornado, and Sean needs someone who can direct him into the correct position to capture incredible IMAX footage.

Filming from the turret of his custom-built Tornado Intercept Vehicle (TIV), Sean puts his life on the line as he endeavours to get the most elusive tornado footage ever shot. He and his battle-hardened team will risk everything as they drive the 14,000-pound armoured TIV straight into the heart of a deadly twister. As the leader of the team, Josh guides the TIV and the mobile scout vehicle toward "intercept" from his captain's chair in his mobile command post - the Doppler On Wheels (DOW) truck. Josh must make critical split-second decisions from information he gathers from his Doppler radar as the safety of the entire team rests on his shoulders.
