More About Banners Presents: Reed Timmer - Extreme Meterologist & Stormchaser

Having intercepted over 1000 tornadoes and a dozen powerful hurricanes since he started chasing 20 years ago, Reed Timmer is well-known as the most successful and extreme storm chaser in the world, and is one of the few people in existence to document both an F5 tornado, and the most devastating hurricane in U.S. history (Hurricane Katrina).

Reed’s “hands-on” experience with a vast assortment of hazardous weather and natural disasters, as well as his extensive education in the science of meteorology, have made him one of the world’s most respected experts on severe weather forecasting, safety, and survival. Reed is a strong advocate for extreme weather and disaster education, and conducts storm spotter seminars for the National Weather Service, emergency managers, and the general public. In 2015 he completed his Ph.D. in Meteorology.

reedtimmer_02Growing up in the ever-changing climate of West Michigan, Reed’s passion for extreme weather has dominated his life for as long as he can remember. His illustrious storm chasing career began at the age of 12, when he destroyed the family video camera in his front yard while being pelted by quarter-size hail in a severe thunderstorm. At the age of 18, Reed decided to pursue his ultimate dream, and enrolled at the University of Oklahoma to study meteorology and chase storms in Tornado Alley.

As a star on Discovery Channel’s Storm Chasers in 2008,Reed became the first person in history to capture High Definition video inside a tornado. The eight episode series had a record 19 million viewers during the 2008 season, and was one of the highest rated shows on Discovery Channel.
