Dodging Twisters with Tim Samaras

Rachel Graham, a friend with National Geographic Books, wrote to let me know they’d made a video to promote Tornado Hunter: Getting Inside the Most Violent Storms on Earth. The book chronicles some of the monster funnels National Geographic grantee Tim Samaras has seen up close, and his harrowing adventures deploying cameras in their paths. You may have seen Tim’s work featured in National Geographic magazine.

If you had any doubts about the devastating power of these killer storms, you won’t after you see one level a farmhouse in seconds in the video. Take a look!
