And do people just think you guys are crazy.
Palin who analyzed the just.
That in people on the street system -- to smell like what what it will what do you guys do -- why you do this mean that the basket to put a bit scared and -- obviously we have situations where.
They aren't particularly good adrenaline gets confident.
I don't remember sometimes we -- definitely have a screw this up there somewhere.
I think -- be the first event that.
You've all been thrill seekers your whole lives there right.
Yes but mainly just for tornadoes that we really have no personal life outside court case nearly Fido and put them on the -- That they -- we've all loved weather sensor like five years old so it just kind you know.
Called development of this -- and the tornado take really keeps us safe and there but it.
Really rocks and I mean when the tornado hits you really feel the true power of -- gonna lift off the ground and expect that much you guys drive around in.
This vessel called the dominate here.
Any upgrades for season for the everywhere -- a lot of upgrades actually we kind of chopped off the -- particular book more aerodynamic we put -- system the passengers had vehicle.
We should probes up inside the tornado.
Now -- and upgraded or are -- -- bad event from -- protective coat.
Kind of -- that tank.
And the air came into it sounds like an elephant -- collars and then we have this big red button that you had that it makes it's -- -- -- -- a -- shoots out a parachute deployed as they get sucked.
-- inside a tornado.
And -- -- -- -- with GPS and see them moving around inside of real time almost like twister but -- -- -- I want to ask -- how accurate that -- -- It's not that -- their -- -- -- like.
You couldn't strap yourself to a pipe and surviving on five we ran well dominated country.
-- -- -- -- of -- battle plan if you got a definite recommend that did about 11 thing against him and value and probably going to be to better be pretty painful death.
But you've had some pretty close calls -- -- breakthrough season for well this is exactly wrapped up for the last two or more tornadoes in the last two seasons combined recycle 42 this year.
Some of them are up to two miles wide and we are inside a tornado in Minnesota and it -- our anemometer often feel the pain -- the back we're sliding across the ground and we're in there for a few minutes so it -- like eternity Taylor inside that tornado the other tornadoes this year stronger and bigger than I mean stuff we've ever seen what I am back.
Just kind of the way happens sometimes and you just don't know and that's what we chase so much which is pretty much every day there's a chance to see tornadoes because you don't know what -- is going to be -- day.
And you know we saw -- in Mississippi one point eight miles wide and in -- town we are actually the first people.
They're so we did first response for the first couple of hours help them find people it was not a guy that's a severe spinal injury and had him -- -- flooded out so.
You know it there was definitely -- stuff this year that you haven't seen before made -- tomatoes are moving at seventy miles an hour city on the horizon and right out in a matter of seconds and I think a lot of it had to do with el Nino conditions in the Pacific so that's why that are well over 900 tornadoes nationwide this -- -- really active.
Well I wanna point out that you -- -- help people I mean you're on TV so it's not like this is just an active and yes your thrill seekers.
But you really are trying to help create warning systems to people don't die from.
You were out there just trying to you know this is we see you recall it and tonight when one -- try to get that the sirens you know go off and -- cursor finance to some extent.
So we can help you know -- -- we can we have a discovery -- that comes along with a series we've found a -- with a spinal injury in the -- he came up and put them up with ideas and everything and stabilize and then we.

A television meteorologists earlier in she came with us for -- -- -- -- but but.
The situation is extremely complicated right now or not.
Seeing each other anymore so.
And it reignited couldn't argue quite a bit about where we're both meteorologists so you know we've we've -- neurology in college and do it would become pretty strong opinions on the on a taser on a forecast and they are not always we don't always agree so impressed the main source of drama he drives and -- had a little yeah.
Think nearly one.
Filming yet to have him back here filming it plays -- like puppets and pop could hook -- -- a -- is horribly form alliances against each other.
