Now a storm chaser, a scientist who risks her life to study the dark side of nature by taking her data-transmitting instruments directly into the path of a deadly storm, Jo chases the largest tornado to ever strike Oklahoma as her marriage implodes and rival scientists will stop and nothing to steal her breakthrough. Go for the ride of your life with this blockbuster from executive producer Steven Spielberg, director Jan de Bont (Speed) and writer Michael Crichton (“ER,” Jurassic Park).
