Mile per hour winds debris fields twisted metal flying through the air and debt is -- likely outcome.
He can be dramatic think again check out this actual footage from Oklahoma on Friday.
There are a growing number of people willing to take massive personal risks and chased these killer storms.
With the news that three professional Storm Chasers were killed this week and doing what they loved to do chasing twisters we ask.
Should they be discouraged from risking their lives or.
Like war correspondents should they be held in high esteem for their bravery and the information the reporting office.
Provocative question who's right let's bring in around the table Kimberly what do you think you can go either way -- some of the stuff.
Yeah I -- not I feel really bad for their families and -- and extremely upsetting and aides stress every time there's bad weather I mean these are experienced individuals that such a high.
Risk I mean that's not something I would -- -- -- mixed feelings you know about it because I hate to see people put themselves and unnecessary harm's way especially they have family -- -- them.
No one of three guys -- in it's Marist develop a he system.
An actual instrument debt debt tracks from the storms do direction the wind speeds and whatnot so he -- does the storm chasing but he also helps society.
But that's the point here to do with all due respect these guys there's this is they get high and going -- doing these things they have equipment or machinery.
That indicates exactly where this stuff it is.
Now why in the world if you've got that you go out there and -- it.
And this one guy you right -- you -- he develop this machinery or this whatever the car.
To track these storms almost it to them to -- within my -- tomorrow.
Why in the world run track -- I think these are guys who like to throw it and this is -- price effect.
And Dana those state trooper Betsy Rudolph -- -- Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper Betsy Rudolph says that some of these people are actually.
Part of the problem they get themselves in trouble -- up the good be saved themselves well -- -- Plus he's got I think she's got a very good point and initially it will my thought was well until the media decides that they don't want to have this coverage.
Then people are gonna continue to do -- but then I read a little bit more about it and there the Storm Chasers in their own words some of the things that they learn more about ground speeds and things that have helped.
People understand how how much time to they had to in order to get to the shelter in those things have really been helpful to saving lives and so.
Adding that it's just a very it's very -- that though the son died within -- and I -- However go Greg done with the war correspondent staff put themselves in dangerous situations but we bring us the story see what's happen exactly it's valuable it's it's almost like.
-- game hunters.
-- because we humans are no longer on the food chain we don't get eaten the closest thing to a predator for us really is a tornado.
The tornadoes like a giant lion on -- for on the prairie and if you don't get if you don't get to safety quicken up the tornado eats you.
So it away in a way tornado chasers are like big game hunters.
-- and there's a risk that happens when you you are hunting.
By the way most people more people probably died climbing Mount Everest -- storm chasing and at least this Storm Chasers.
Get information that helps keep.
Ball well that's that's the real question -- do today -- that -- that -- have -- advantage and they don't -- got to do that I'd suggest to some of this stuff.
Is sold for good for TV outlet yeah.
It's very exciting is very -- -- But I just want to know if there's -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That helped -- save lives or do they.
Not -- -- I tweeted this last I threw that question up there is is this something that we wanna encourage or is something that we wanted discouraging.
And I get -- -- there if that were literally hundreds of twitters saying though they help us out they tell us what the storms are they tell us when they're headed our way people are really interested in in that continuing.
Do we have a time limit we're out of time with somebody from the -- -- was his last.
Not time -- -- -- we don't have a right.
-- that we had been a great video that he recorded from a storm in that -- at bank in Kansas and now his son actually shot that video on sadly -- -- lost their lives the tragedy that should not have happened.
Okay we really they're coming up did you.
