"Storm Chasers" roars back for Season 5 on Discovery Channel with the whole story on this year's record setting tornados. It's been a year of historic and tragic loss, unimaginable damage and an earth shattering reminder of nature's force and power. 

Extreme meteorologist Reed Timmer, IMAX filmmaker Sean Casey and veteran chaser Tim Samaras are back tracking the monster tornados that made headlines throughout this past spring storm season. "Storm Chasers" teams witnessed first-hand the infamous tornado outbreak of April 27, 2011 when nearly 200 tornados were recorded and over 300 lives lost in just a single day. Their exclusive, never-before-seen footage combined with meteorological expertise and years of chasing experience piece together a day unprecedented in history.

In addition to the monster storms of Spring 2011, the new season of "Storm Chasers" features new chase vehicles including the debut of Timmer's "Dominator 2" and cutting edge research tools such as sophisticated radar equipment and air cannons.

Sean Casey, having successfully completed his IMAX film (Tornado Alley is now playing in theaters and science centers across the country) has now set his sights on another storm chasing first: filming tornados in 3D.

Twistex's newly revamped chase vehicle has all the bells and whistles with new doppler radar and probes but will its leader Tim Samaras alienate the team with his new aggressive style?

The stakes and challenges are clearly high for all three teams. Now the race is on to learn more about these monsters of Mother Nature, improve early warning systems and save lives. Hold on for television's most powerful hour.

"Storm Chasers" Season 5 is produced for Discovery Channel by Original Media. Charlie Corwin, Lisa Bloch and Clara Markowicz are executive producers for Original Media. Bill Howard is executive producer for Discovery Channel.
