I think we have seen the last of this cable-channel-sponsored breed of thrill-seeker/content-provider. It seems clear that the only reason these types of accidents hadn’t happened before was that until now, tornados were fairly difficult to get close to. With climate change, that has changed. Any fool can find one on a a summer afternoon in “tornado alley.” These cyclones are killers, not amusement park rides, as residents of Moore, OK, and other communities can attest.
Ironically, the three fatalities were members of a scientific team (“Twistex”) that seemed (by their videos) to be the most cautious of the three or four most “visible” groups who appear regularly on cable channels. At the same time, it seems as though their vehicle was the least suited to withstand high winds.
