Reed is at the centre of one of the largest tornadoes in history, but he doesn't know that yet. He and his team of storm chasers follow and film extreme weather for a living, but this is not an average day at the office. El Reno grows in size and power as it moves across the state, taking them by surprise at every turn, but still they keep going. Why? Their footage will be broadcast on television for the country (and the world) to see.

Stig certainly thinks so.
