(Silver Spring, Md.) -- Television's most electrifying hour, STORM CHASERS, returns with bigger storms and higher stakes in the exciting fourth season, premiering Wednesday, October 13th at 10 PM on Discovery Channel. STORM CHASERS' teams are on the scene recording data and gathering research in order to improve early warning systems.

In hot pursuit is extreme chaser Reed Timmer and Chris Chittick now reunited with their driver and buddy Joel Taylor. Veteran engineer Tim Samaras is on the chase as well testing his latest research equipment.
