    Some deaths do indeed seem very sad but these two pretty much got what they asked for, unfortunately. No reason at all in an era when drones fight wars and gather information for them to have been doing what they were doing.

    I think some of the information you can get up close can't be gathered with Drones. They had very sophisticated equipement on the car, so that tornado must have done something very unpredictable for them to have been caught by it.
    These guys know Tornados better than you know your wife.
