    I was watching Dr Timmers feed live the entire time, he realized just how large and dangerous this storm was. His expertise and and years of experience help educate people and save lives. The heart of a true meteorologist.

      You can't blame Reed. His first ever tornado was the infamous May 3rd, 1999 Moore tornado, and his team almost got hit by it under an overpass. They could have become one of the overpass casualties that day, as the same tornado hit three other overpasses that day that each had a fatality. Reed knows firsthand how deadly these storms get.

    Incredible footage 😮 Well done for helping those poor people tonight Dr Timmer. You're a shining example. Vince, Brandon and Charles Peak really helped some families by Rolling Fork. I can't imagine the sights that you gentlemen sometimes see after such direct strikes. Best wishes to you Sir.

      I'm from Anguilla and while I do appreciate coverage of the tornado, the last thing we need is someone running around screaming their head off during a tornado emergency. This does not help anyone and only creates further chaos in an already serious situation.

    • Tornado Stories

      @Jeanie Ferris I'd just politely point out that any shouting shown in the video was done on the side of a busy road, prior to the tornado impact. You'll see that Reed was very solemn, and helped taking victims to the hospital when the video cuts to after the impact. He's a PhD meteorologist with 20 years experience chasing tornadoes and doing danger close research with scientific instruments. If Reed shouted by a roadside 10 miles outside my town, I wouldn't turn him away when he calmly pulled me out of the devastated wreckage of my home and took me to hospital. You know?

    im starting to think its safer to be in a car than a cheaply made house. Yea , if the house exterior walls are cinder block or brick , maybe not. But if the house walls are plywood , the car is safer. ( smaller profile for the wild to act on , greater sectional density

    • Dee Da Dee
      Dee Da Dee 2 months ago +1

      With an EF-5 tornado, the only safe place is below ground. I lived through Hurricane Irma with the eyewall going over our house built to 2006 Hurricane codes (Concrete blockwith metal shutters on every window and strapped down roof) as a CAT 3 (Sustained winds up to 130mph) and we could still feel wind seeping through air and laundry vents and our windows rattling. EF5 tornados can be up to 200mph winds…maybe an above ground bomb shelter could tolerate that, but not even the sturdiest homes in Florida. An EF will pick up a semi truck and smash it back down on the ground like an empty soda can.

    The excitement in Reed Timmer’s voice only gets more annoying every time I hear it. Ppl will lose property and loved ones and this perpetually juvenile chaser has to change his pants because it’s a wedge.

    This was, of course, an ACT of GOD. The people of MS better figure out what they've done to anger the Lord so much that He (in his infinite wisdom and righteousness) sent these tornadoes to punish the sinners and their families. If these fallen people don't repent and beg God for mercy, this will happen again. Praise His Holy Name!!

    This guy has seen tons of tornadoes. So I don't understand why he screams like he's never seen one before. He just keeps shouting and shouting.
    My heart goes out to the people affected by this monster tornado. As we watched the radar and CC in real time, it was evident that this one was causing a lot of destruction

    • Petemonster62
      Petemonster62 2 months ago +8

      There must have been people standing there who were trying to see the tornado. He was trying to get them to take cover and through his experience was able to tell it was a wedge.

    • Stan Rose
      Stan Rose 2 months ago +7

      because it's an adrenaline rush, that's why. It doesn't mean he is insensitive or unaware of all the potential destruction or loss of life, he cares more than anyone--but it's just an incredible experience. If you've seen a great sunset it doesn't mean the next one isn't any less spectacular. Now imagine that sunset times a hundred. That's the thrill of the experience. And Reed is passionate about it. If you don't have any passions that keep you shouting, you ought to find one.

    Was on the Live feed with Reed Timmer & Friends & also Twitter feed. Was very impressed with everything esp. Reed transporting 2 injured people (Reed was told they will be ok). Prior to Reed having to leave the stream bc of communication/cellphone issues & the fact he was helping people...The chat moderators were being absurd. I was posting Twitter info about the damage done & where help was needed ( I was not called out or asked to stop, so this is NOT personal)!! Chat mods were picking on anyone using a lot of emojis or caps. in their messages.
    At a time when information is needed desperately & fear was literally palpable...who cares if someone used 8 praying emojis? Or cap locked THEIR MESSAGE? js.

      They have real time radar readouts in the vehicles, GPS, etc. since Reed is one of the best and most experienced storm chasers in the world and lots of tornadoes happen at night. So, definitely not something for amateurs! Personally, I am happy to be on the west coast when it comes to watching tornadoes.

      @William Schaefer exactly. If I survived and I thought my pets were running around terrified, I would be crushed. To those ignorant people saying humans are dead and that poster is worried about that dog, why can't people be concerned for both? Are people that shallow that they can't offer empathy for both?

      Have you ever heard of storm chasers? You think they just randomly happen to be in rural Mississippi mocking a tornado? The whole point is to watch storms and alert people. I guess the national weather service is hopped up on Red Bull? Who wouldn’t be reactive to seeing a huge tornado… and I’m sure after a small town is destroyed… residents are glad to see people arrive.
