We lost three incredible storm chasers on Friday, May 31, 2013 in the violent El Reno, Oklahoma tornado while they were trying to document it. - Tim and Paul Samaras, and Carl Young - Tim was a friend that I miss dreadfully. These three were the greatest and safest people in the storm chasing business. My heart and prayers will always go out to them and their families.
The cities of Moore and El Reno sustained significant tornado damage Please keep Oklahoma in your hearts and prayers.
The three of you will always be in our hearts.
