CHASE SUMMARY

Texas Storm Chasers’s David Reimer and Paige Burress headed out to West Texas to document large hail (which they did very efficiently in the first clip of this video). What was not expected ended up being at least seven tornadoes from a nearly stationary supercell near Dimmitt, Texas. Some of these tornadoes occurred simultaneously and at close-range. Enjoy our video and please remember that we’ve been doing this a long while. Raw emotion is to be expected.
