Chasing Tornadoes

Storm expert Tim Samaras shares his up-close-and-personal experiences with deadly wind funnels

You might think that after Hurricane Ike, Houstonians would want to avoid hearing about swirling vortices of wind, but it’s hard to resist a lecture from tornado expert Tim Samaras, who will present Chasing Tornadoes tonight at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Using footage from his many close encounters, Samaras will talk about how he predicts and tracks storms, deploying probes into tornadoes in order to learn more about the science behind them. You’ve already taken a master class in the tornado’s oversized cousin; learn more about feisty funnels today at 6:30 pm. One Hermann Circle Drive. For information, call 713-639-4629 or visit www.hmns.org. $17.
Wed., Nov. 5, 6:30 p.m., 2008
