I don't know what happened to reach everybody was a kid scratch that I read decided that has grown up he's gonna drive -- tornadoes.
Well I've I've -- what -- 2005000 signs there our guard up and then went to University of Oklahoma and lousy team -- -- commitments to what was you know it's always.
So I did this blog and check this like just for the first time I was not here earlier I put -- together what is it.
Well it ended based vehicle is -- originally and then we have sixteen gauge steel we have WiMax armor on the outside as hydraulics that contract itself plus the ground.
And we have an aerodynamic.
Outer shell also works opposite of an airplane wing.
So it sort of re doing and getting dressed up right now I would imagine that's -- you have -- you're pulling close to the actual tornado but when you're out on the road.
Thank you get those flaps yet I'm -- those -- and bring up the skirt so that the carpet actually go more than.
Four miles -- -- left it up a little bit.
-- -- -- -- about a foot higher than this for the drive -- I mean if we get.
-- in the design.
Well Kevin Barton up in Michigan -- I used to work -- the golf course business and you as a mechanic there and don't race cars the dirt tracks in Michigan so we approached him with the concept.
And this -- came up with -- survive -- storm.
Yet survived about a dozen tornadoes inside we've entered a 155 point two mile per hour women want and what would it complicates hurricanes and -- It's driven over a 100000 miles and so it's been inside a lot a lot of -- a third one I can withstand stronger tornadoes even when you're inside a tornado.
To -- stopped the vehicle or are you still driving and does it ever feel like.
It's kinda looked and it's not.
Does that you'll get in the past -- -- in a new -- it -- and the tornadoes not moving side to side it's likely coming at you or it's moving away so get out -- that visually.
And we dropped the -- to the ground and just let it hit us and it feels like the whole vehicle shakes back and forth your ears are popping to the pressure fall and it feels like it any second it could.
Lift off the ground so it once -- you were inside one of them a winnable -- and that's.
It was bad.
Yeah we have that would double -- and new years ago but they're not motivated improvements and with dominated two we had a button and the like next they're elects him windows automatically pop up.
Voicing it right there that's this is second window.
They're double Pollock our windows now too so we can.
As the number one thing about this vehicle that.
Keeps it to survive a storm.
Well it works the opposite of an airplane wings an airplane wing of the flat undecided -- rounded -- side and that causes left and so we drop it -- to the ground.
And you have no -- I'm going underneath that minimizes the left.
And is also hydraulics bikes -- go in my four inches into the ground even pavement that keeps us further into the ground so that we keep you from going.
Forward or backwards but straight up.
Maybe not so much the exact thing and I mean if we slide across the ground you know that would be acceptable we did that -- EF four tornado Minnesota and that's why we added this fight to try to -- Stephen -- -- they did so if people would like to see some of the crazy videos go to tornado videos dot net.
-- -- -- get a weather dot com we have a online series mar 2012 season so we intercepted 45 tornadoes this year.
You have to picture your weather -- up there at the top that says young with that with the green tape and it can you -- up.
And up -- -- to the the velocity meter what happened.
Yeah we need a new blade actually on the way -- here to New York City the blade came off but we'll have to replace those every year and -- -- instruments we're driving too fast out -- the turnpike.
Never over the speed limit.
Dominated takes about ten minutes to get there anyway.
A kind of looks you get on the road a lot of crazy looks at from the inside distilled like you've got a lot time to forget that you're in the commentator and you -- people drive by and that's it's a lot of fun there -- well wherever he's doing it must be some bad stuff happening.
Yeah I usually -- in.
A lot of good looks innocent tornado when you're going through their town advocate you know also could help all the warning process and that's why Storm Chasers are out there is to relay those reports and do research and try to help out the -- process that's -- stuff thanks for bringing them to dominate -- to buy.
World headquarters that I would get to welcome to -- -- -- all right all right did you read that you.
