Discovery’s Explain the Why and How in an all-new world premiere special,
TORNADO RAMPAGE 2011 on Sunday, May 22, 9 PM (ET/PT) on Discovery Channel
Tornados are one of Mother Nature’s most mystifying, deadly forces. When conditions are just right what starts as a breeze can becomes a mass of spinning energy as loud as a jet engine and as strong as a freight train. All three chase teams witnessed the storms from different locations across the South allowing Discovery to offer a comprehensive, 360° look at this unimaginable tragedy.
“In all my years of chasing tornados, this was hands down the most day. The intensity of the storm activity and the sheer number of tornados that touched down is overwhelming and heartbreaking. By studying this historic day we hope to learn more information for our research and help better predict tornados and save lives,” said ’ meteorologist Reed Timmer
TORNADO RAMPAGE 2011 is produced for Discovery Channel by Darlow Smithson. Tom Brisley and Guy Davies are executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Stephen Reverend is executive producer.
