Brantley Hargrove Brantley Hargrove is a journalist and author who has written for Wired, Popular Mechanics, and Texas Monthly. While researching his debut biography, "The Man Who Caught the Storm: The Life of Legendary Tornado Chaser Tim Samaras," he decided he needed to walk a few miles in his subject's shoes. To better understand Samaras' world, he pursued violent storms from the Great Plains down to the Texas coast, including a land-falling Category 4 hurricane and one of the rarest tornadic events in recent memory: twin EF4 tornadoes that chewed through a small Nebraskan farming village. He lives in Dallas, Texas, with his wife, Renee, and their two cats.
