TORNADO!! This one word is enough to scare the hell out of you because we all know this massive power of nature leaves nothing but the dust behind when it hits a place. While there are people shivering with Goosebumps merely at the name of tornado, there are others planning to explore the inside of it with reinforced vehicle. This is insane!!
They customize a heavy duty vehicle to stand up against the high winds of tornado. Two well known vehicles to chase tornado, designed by a filmmaker Sean Casey are: Tornado Intercept Vehicle 1(TIV 1) and Tornado Intercept Vehicle 2 (TIV 2). It seriously needs a heart of steel to think about chasing or intercepting tornados even in a highly reinforced vehicle.
This is TIV (Tornado Intercept Vehicle) built from a Ford F-450
The following video clip is from the inside of TIV while they were driving towards this fierce tornado in Kansas.
The instrument was blown away in the process before which the registered wind speed was 150-170 miles per hour. Now, you can raise your brows.
Clearly, running behind tornados is not a job of a chicken heart.
