Reed Timmer, a graduate from Forest Hills Central High school has always loved storms and now seems to be living out his dreams chasing tornadoes and severe storms as a star on Discovery Channel’s “Storm Chasers”.
Reed’s Bio from the Discovery Channel says Reed’s first experience with severe storms happened when he was just 13, filming a severe thunderstorm in West Michigan when he was pelted with hail stones that destroyed the family camcorder. Recently Reed has been a guest with Jay Leno on the Tonight show discussing why Tornadoes happen.
Several weeks ago over 200 tornadoes wreaked havoc on the southern US. Reed and the team from “Storm Chasers” were there and filmed some incredible coverage of some of the most devastating tornadoes in history. “Tornado Rampage 2011” will air at 9 p.m. Sunday on the Discovery Channel.
