6-22-12-tvnweatherAs the sun began to set last evening (June 22, 2012), TVN storm chasers Reed Timmer, Dick McGowan, Chris Chittick and Chad Cowan intercepted a violent tornado over country in extreme southwestern South Dakota! With the Dominator in the shop undergoing engine repairs, the crew was forced to chase without the protection of its Lexan windows. Massive hail (which Reed describes as the largest he has ever see) being driven by hurricane-force winds in the near-tornado environment blew out several windows on their vehicle as they remained focused on documenting one of 2012's most photogenic tornadoes--check out their video, below! Stay tuned for more updates, and be sure to check out for live storm chasing and commentary from the field, and to sign up for the soon to be released webisodes, which will detail the entire 2012 severe weather season!
