EL RENO, OK- KFOR-TV’s meteorologist and storm chaser Reed Timmer remembers three Discovery Channel stars that were killed in last Friday’s tornado in El Reno.

According to KFOR-TV, Reed’s friends Tim Samaras and Carl Young, as well as Samaras’ son Paul, lost their lives while chasing the storm. Tim Samaras 2009 Chevy Cobalt was found ripped to shreds after the tornado, but it’s not clear if Samaras was actually driving the vehicle when the storm hit, says KFOR.

Reed says all three storm chasers will leave behind important legacies.
