Tornado Alley (2011) Trailer
Trailer for the documentary Tornado Alley.
Join the world's most daring large-format filmmaker Sean Casey (star of Discovery Channel's wildly popular Storm Chasers series) on his personal quest to witness the birth of a tornado from its very heart. Armed with an IMAX camera, a fleet of customized vehicles designed to withstand gale force winds, torrential rains and unrelenting hail, and an arsenal of the most advanced weather measurement instruments ever created, Sean Casey takes audiences on a heart-pounding mission to experience a tornado's destructive power at point blank range.
Scientific research becomes a thrilling quest as Casey travels alongside top mesometeorologist Dr. Josh Wurman and supports the work of the VORTEX 2 project (funded by the National Science Foundation and NOAA), the most ambitious effort ever made to understand the origins, structure, and evolution of tornadoes. Traversing Tornado Alley, the "severe weather capital of the world," in their DOW (Doppler of Wheels) and TIVs (Tornado Intercept Vehicles), Casey and the VORTEX 2 team experience the relentless strength of nature's elemental forces while gathering the most comprehensive extreme weather data ever collected in the attempt to discover how we can predict the occurrence of weather events and limit their destructive power.
