TORNADO CHASERS KILLED CHASING TORNADO
It's just not wise to play tag with large tornados. (6/3/2013)
On June 2, 2013, Tim Samaris, his son Paul, and cameraman Carl Young were killed on the road while chasing a tornado in Oklahoma. On the matrix below the axis term is a transliteration of TIM SAMARIS. DISASTER ON THE ROAD is found in the open text. An ELS of TORNADO is present. The verse voicing concern about the death of a son is Genesis 42:8 (DISASTER ON THE ROAD…AND BRING DOWN MY GREY HAIR IN SADNESS TO THE GRAVE) which crosses the first letter of TIM. The reference to THE CITIES is found in the open text at Genesis 19:29. It refers to Sodom and Gomorrah being thrown down by God. Much of Oklahoma City has been thrown down in recent weeks by tornados.
FoxNews.Com article dated June 2, 2013: STAR OF DISCOVERY'S 'STORM CHASER' SHOW AMONG DEAD IN OKLAHOMA TORNADO.
The star of the Discovery Channel show “Storm Chasers,” his son and a colleague have been identified as victims in the deadly outbreak of tornadoes that swept through the Oklahoma City area on Friday.
Tim Samaras, 55, died with his son Paul, 24, and friend Carl Young, 45, in Canadian County chasing down a tornado that wreaked havoc along Interstate 40, Fox 25 reports.
“We are deeply saddened by the loss of Tim Samaras his son Paul and their colleague Carl Young,” the Discovery Channel said in a statement to FoxNews.com. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families.”
The channel added that it would be dedicating Sunday night's show on the tornadoes in their memory.
Tim Samaras is a 20-year veteran of storm chasing and founded the project TWISTEX (Tactical Weather Instrumented Sampling in Tornadoes Experiment), which gathers weather information by placing devices in the way of tornadoes, Fox 17 reports.
In 2004, Tim Samaras dropped a probe into the path of an EF-4 tornado, where it measured a 100 millibar pressure drop -- a record that still stands today, the Discovery Channel's website says.
Since 2003, Tim Samaras, meteorologist Carl Young and their team have tracked down more than 125 tornadoes, according to Young's biography on Discovery Channel's website.
Samaras appeared for three seasons on the Discovery Channel show, Fox 17 reports.
Five tornadoes swept through the Oklahoma City area on Friday, killing at least 10 and injuring 115, according to authorities who spoke to the Associated Press.
STATISTICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MATRIX. As per my standard protocol, no statistical significance is attached to the axis term, here TIM SAMARIS at its second lowest skip. DISASTER ON THE ROAD is exactly what happened to the Discovery film crew. Before adjusting odds for the ELS rank 2 of the axis term, this phrase is found in the open text against odds of about 279 to 1. The same odds apply to TORNADO with 2 spellings used for a transliteration of the English term. For the expression AND BRING DOWN MY GREY HAIR IN SADNESS TO THE GRAVE, although it refers to a father's concern for the welfare of his son, and although Tim Samaris was brought down to the grave with his son, no extra statistical significance is assigned to this fact, which was an a-posteriori concept. I did use both the more common 3-letter word and the much rarer term shown to see how likely the concept of the grave was to be found on the matrix. One of the words for it had about one chance in 5 to be on the matrix. There was about 1 chance in 2 for THE CITIES or CITY to be present, but CHASE was expected to be on a matrix this large. Overall, after factoring in ELS rank 2 of TIM SAMARIS, the matrix exists against odds of about 460,273 to 1.
