So touching. To remember the lives of former ‘Storm Chasers’ star Tim Samara, his son Paul and co-star Carl Young, who were killed in a tornado on May 31, Discovery Channel plans to air an emotional tribute.
Former Storm Chasers star Tim Samaras, his son Paul Samaras, and colleague Carl Young were killed while chasing the deadly Oklahoma tornado on May 31. Discovery Channel says it will remember the storm chasers by airing a three-hour tribute on June 4.

“Mile Wide Tornado: Stormchasers Tribute” will feature scenes of Tim, Paul and Carl from Storm Chasers, according to FOX News.
The three men spent years sharing storm videos with millions of TV viewers. Sadly, they died on Friday when a tornado with winds of up to 165 mph claimed their lives.
“Mile Wide Tornado” first aired on June 2 and focused on the May 20 Oklahoma tornado that also injured and killed many, many people. It was even dedicated to the fallen chasers. But Discovery Channel says it has since updated the special with Storm Chasers footage of Tim, Paul and Carl, and it will air on June 4 at 10 p.m. ET!
Discovery Channel Releases Statement On Chaser Deaths
“We are deeply saddened by the loss of Tim Samaras his son Paul and their colleague Carl Young. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families,” Discovery Channel said in a statement.
Storm Chasers aired for five seasons before ending in November 2011.
