An Oklahoma over the weekend after Friday's violent burst of tornadoes and flash flooding.
Among the dead in this situation are three Storm Chasers from Colorado including Carl young.
And a veteran chase -- -- -- Maris and his son Paul.
Friends remembering where their love and dedication for what they did.
The passions always been there and -- stuck with them and he devoted his literally is life.
To saving other lives and to be able to capture tornadoes and to be able to save lives for the technologies developed.
We go out it's not just a thrill -- but it's also collecting data it's also.
You know when it in an area has been raped by a tornado -- were almost the first responders.
For the chasers and their video have been featured on discovery channel's Storm Chasers.
The network says that it will put new safety rules in place for their people out there.
Mike -- is live in El Reno Oklahoma.
So Mike do they expect today as we have seen in the past that the death -- told may continue to go higher as they.
Get through the rubble there.
Gay you know sadly mark that they do this is an example the rubble of this is an example of the force of this tornado just blew out this brick and cinder block wall.
-- this technology center.
But it wasn't necessarily the tornado that claim the victims the floodwaters came up here very fast because the ground was already saturated from the previous tornadoes.
So now you have the rescue crews out in the Oklahoma river and the deep fork river.
Looking for more victims are still are.
For -- children and two adults missing and a hard part is.
That victims have been found now -- miles downstream so this truth is tremendous swap of of land.
And river that the rescue crews now have to search as they are trying to identify more victims or find more victims of this deadly weather month.
Terrible awful investments have been through.
And then there's the whole issue of these Storm Chasers.
Who ended up getting killed by the tornado and Mike we've all watched -- interviewed and listen to these guys as they get closer.
Today's tornadoes and they always seemed to you know escape.
Fine because of their experience.
And it raises a lot of questions.
About this practice and about how it's carried out what happened to them.
We know there's two possible theories are two theories about how these guys possibly but got got caught by the tornado given all of their experience.
One this is a big tornado -- EF three and it made an abrupt left turn that a lot of people couldn't predict even your experienced people couldn't necessarily seen that looking at the at the computer and the other theory is that they got caught in that big traffic jam along I forty -- -- we're trying to -- the stormy had just too many cars piling on of one stretch of highway had gridlock and they were sitting ducks as this big tornado came in a direction.
Lots more to be act said and thought about with regard to.
Those three and you know there's all different kinds of Storm Chasers -- -- Mike thank you very much Mike Tobin in -- Reno Oklahoma you know there.
