    1:21 "Tim is the safest of any storm chaser there is…"
    I’m so glad Skip Talbot spoke up about this because I know I’ve been thinking the same thing for years. Tim got very close to tornadoes. His passing along with his son, and Carl were tragic, but I never understood the need to act like they never got close to tornadoes in the past. I know this is years late, but since the 10 year anniversary is coming up, I’ve been rewatching all these old videos and I still feel the same way today as I did when it happened.

    Never challenge or question MOTHER NATURE . It’s an insult to divine protection . If all the mysteries of our existence were meant to be solved . Humans would know how we got to 🌎 and why . We still don’t.

    my heart goes out to his contributions. but, the safest storm chaser, chose a chevy cobalt? sorry what?

    Tornadoes are best viewed from a distance…they look more amazing and are photogenically more interesting when viewed from a distance. Tornadoes are killers….let’s keep the deaths to an absolute minimum!!

  11. Abigail Nwanze on September 22, 2022 at 4:44 pm

    Rest in peace Tim and his son and friend

  12. Courier 6 on September 22, 2022 at 4:44 pm

    Crazy its been almost 10 years since he died, still holding on buddy, rest easy.

  13. Ron Jones on September 22, 2022 at 4:45 pm

    he was stuck with his son and co worker(s) they knew they were going to die, i cant imagine their last words before the car was thrashed and mangled by the tornado

  14. Daniel Wynn on September 22, 2022 at 4:47 pm

    I miss Tim Samaras so much he was my friend but he died and I multiple-vortex tornado search for me it’ll kill him and I’mma beat up that tornado

  15. Landon Thompson on September 22, 2022 at 4:47 pm

    I just don’t understand why of all vehicles to be riding in, a Chevrolet Cobalt is the one used? If I was doing that line of work, I sure as hell would have a vehicle that is caged, ultra thick metal to deflect debris and ultimately the best bullet proof windows that are mounted in a fashion to where it is hard to be sucked out. That would be the rig of choice, a Suburban loaded with the listed safety items listed up above, BTW i would add special racing driver and passenger harnesses to secure the personnel from flying away

  16. bethina o on September 22, 2022 at 4:50 pm

    Still sad for Tim Samaras.

  17. ChristianRose on September 22, 2022 at 4:51 pm

    RiP Tim, Paul and Carl. You died heros. I’m fascinated by that storm, I watch every video I can on it. It was a monster driven by a demon. The Twistex team were the most safety conscious out there. Nothing but the El Reno F5 could have taken them out!

  18. Bo thomas1977 on September 22, 2022 at 4:53 pm

    i remember this like it was yesterday, because of people like Tim Samaras we have better warning time today to prepare for a tornado no doubt in my mind his research has continued on and inspired by other people in the field and he and his team will be known to have that legacy, RIP team

  19. closinginonclosure on September 22, 2022 at 4:53 pm

    Not sure how he could have been "the safest" storm chaser out there, given what happened.

  20. Chris on September 22, 2022 at 4:53 pm

    What an idiot…

  21. logan on September 22, 2022 at 4:54 pm

    “and their partner carl jung” huuuhhhh

  22. Nato on September 22, 2022 at 4:55 pm

    Tim was a legend!

  23. Joseph Higgs on September 22, 2022 at 4:55 pm

    Someone should’ve never let them go out in a Chevy Cobalt. A powerless piece of junk! Ugh this makes me so sad.

  24. Jim Bob on September 22, 2022 at 4:56 pm

    When you mess with mother nature …mother nature will mess with you back… dont poke the bear…

  25. basic breakfast on September 22, 2022 at 4:57 pm

    Guy runs TOWARDS tornados for a living, and it’s “unbelievable” when a tornado kills him?

    Check your logic here people

  26. G G on September 22, 2022 at 4:58 pm

    All you storm chasers better take a lesson from this. Use 4WD vehicles with high clearance and all terrain or mud tires. This was preventable. No brainer. You never know when you’ll have to drive over debris, drive through a ditch, or take a back road or dirt road. No brainer!

  27. PresleyWOLF on September 22, 2022 at 4:58 pm

    Tim that was when I was born and I probably would not be here without you your an amazing daredevil person and I love that in loving memory we will see you again one day

  28. TurboJesus™️ on September 22, 2022 at 4:59 pm

    No disrespect but a front wheel drive car was an awful choice for a storm chaser vehicle

  29. yoink dudu on September 22, 2022 at 4:59 pm

    Damn

  30. Missum Enim Satanas 666 on September 22, 2022 at 5:01 pm

    How exactly did they die? Blunt force trams or what? Were they in car or outside of the vehicle? Really sad

  31. Darren Walters on September 22, 2022 at 5:01 pm

    I mean, saying you are a safe storm chaser is like saying I’m a safe wingsuit jumper; contradictions in terms. Sorry to friends and families, nonetheless.

    He was probably like, "You guys are going to give me a raise, right?"

  32. Robert Bolding on September 22, 2022 at 5:02 pm

    always making excuses, it changed course, and what science he collected video he had a high school degree and put some white plastic plumbing on his car. he chased in the worst possible vehicle too. underpowered and 2 wheels drive. it was just a matter of time

  33. Freaky Deaky on September 22, 2022 at 5:04 pm

    He definitely was the Steve Irwin of the storm community

  34. Entertain Me on September 22, 2022 at 5:05 pm

    🌪

  35. Minty Dot on September 22, 2022 at 5:05 pm

    omg 🙂

  36. MOMS Mushrooms Jody Foster on September 22, 2022 at 5:06 pm

    They lived more of their lives than most who.make it to 99

  37. Schnitzel Schnizel on September 22, 2022 at 5:06 pm

    He had gotten out of being the safety guy if you watch the earlier videos to May 31,2013. He had become an idiot that I knew that unfortunately would get himself and others killed. God can do anything. He can have a tornado turn into any direction that he wants to not just what the textbooks say in what direction they go. The El Reno, Tornado killed an obese fat guy photographer, too. The El Reno Tornado within a few minutes time changed from 1 and half miles in width to 2.66 miles in width the largest on record ever. The Ghost train and rfd can and does extend even further than that. It had a Cape value of 6,500 where as the cape value of a "normal" tornado is 250. It had winds of 320-330 mph. With wind speed like that it can pickup a car like a toy and toss it for miles even cardboard becomes deadly. People’s ears will and do pop and bleed. The only way to survive such a monster is to flee by car several literal states away as the local forecasters told the population to do. They did not think getting underneath the ground in an basement was safe for this storm for some reason. Etc. My prayers go out to his brother and his wife.

  38. Anthony Solomon on September 22, 2022 at 5:06 pm

    Obviously, he wasn’t very safe, a FWD car in a dirt road with storms = not very bright, should have stayed on concrete, period, even some SUVs aren’t great off-road clay roads turn to slush etc.

  39. TheBasicCarGuy on September 22, 2022 at 5:09 pm

    Wait, was this Team Twistex

  40. Alina Callas on September 22, 2022 at 5:11 pm

    I feel sooo bad for Tim’s wife losing her husband and son in the Same incident

  41. Jim Bob on September 22, 2022 at 5:11 pm

    A chevy cobalt? Who the hell would chase a tornado in that?? How stupid 🙄

  42. Colwell Life on September 22, 2022 at 5:12 pm

    El Reno Tornado was a demon…

  43. Calvin Bealer on September 22, 2022 at 5:13 pm

    I Cannot Understand what makes an Individual chased a God made storm that knows it going to Kill you. SENSELESS

  44. Campbell73 on September 22, 2022 at 5:13 pm

    Sometimes your the windshield and sometimes your the bug!!!!. Well…. Tim has NOW become the bug!. 🤔…. He knew the possibilities!. Time to move the hell on!!

  45. Jason Lurf on September 22, 2022 at 5:13 pm

    A four door sedan with windows looks like a poor choice to use near tornadoes.

  46. TMNT Leo Wynn on September 22, 2022 at 5:14 pm

    😭😭🌹🌹🌹 R.I.P Tim Samaras Paul Samaras caul Young my friends 😭😭😭🌹🌹💔💔💔💔

  47. MIM on September 22, 2022 at 5:16 pm

    Safest storm chasers is an oxymoron

  48. David B on September 22, 2022 at 5:19 pm

    Saddest day for storm chasers… Tim and his team are legends.

  49. ♡Mia♡ on September 22, 2022 at 5:23 pm

    God bless Tim trying to save lives just to pay the storm his own 😔
