LOS ANGELES — Discovery Channel says it will honor three veteran storm chasers who died in Oklahoma with a special airing this week.
The program, "Mile Wide Tornado: Stormchasers Tribute," will feature scenes of Tim Samaras, his son Paul and Carl Young from the former series "Stormchasers." It airs at 9 p.m. Wednesday.
The men spent years capturing and sharing storm videos with TV viewers and weather researchers. They died Friday when a tornado with winds of up to 165 mph turned on them in the Oklahoma City area. The storm and flooding claimed more than a dozen other lives.
"Mile Wide Tornado" originally aired Sunday and focuses on the May 20 tornado that devastated a wide swatch of Oklahoma. Discovery says it has been updated with "Stormchasers" footage of the researchers.
