This presentation takes you along for the storm chase and inside the tornado in the armored Dominator vehicles. Dr. Reed Timmer discusses the science behind the most extreme tornado intercepts over the last 25 years of storm chasing in Tornado Alley. Dr. Timmer shares the story and the data collected behind the first ever rocket launched into a tornado from the Dominator 3 into the Linwood, KS EF4 tornado in 2019, and also the legendary drone intercept of the Andover, KS tornado on April 29, 2022. The Dominator 3, as featured in the hit series Storm Chasers on Discovery Channel, will also be on hand for personalized vehicle tours. Come dominate the Storm with nationally known storm chaser Reed Timmer as he shares stories of his most extreme tornado intercepts.Dr. Reed Timmer is an extreme meteorologist and storm chaser who specializes in intercepting the most powerful storms on the planet to collect valuable scientific data. Graduating with a PhD in meteorology from the University of Oklahoma, Timmer is not only a hardcore storm chaser, but also a scientist driven to unravel the mysteries behind these destructive storms and how they are changing over time. With a life devoted completely to storm chasing and extreme field research, Dr. Timmer has intercepted nearly 1000 tornadoes and dozens of hurricanes over the last few decades and is one of the few people in history to document both an EF5 tornado and Category 5 hurricane. He considers the up-close chasing of tornadoes an artform that is perfected over decades of experience. The famous, tank-like storm chasing vehicles, called the Dominators, were invented by Timmer in 2009 for the purpose of recording data inside these most dangerous storms.
