Overview

Though "storm chasers" have been tagged, in many spheres, as reckless thrill-seekers with more than a passing death wish, the documentary Tornado Hunters suggests that such reputations are largely undeserved. It visits several such individuals whose tornado-chasing adventures have profoundly deepened and broadened mankind's knowledge of how funnel clouds operate. Profiled subjects include Peggy Willenberg and Melanie Metz, who became local heroes when a tornado run led them to rescue four adolescents from a collapsed farmhouse; Ted Fujita, a professor who developed an influential scale for measuring tornadoes, and David Arnold, the leader of a student-based team of "tornado observers."
