Three storm chasers were among the nine people killed in the most recent tornadoes to strike Oklahoma, CNN reports.
Tim Samaras, 55, and his 24-year-old son Paul died along with 45-year-old Carl Young whilst chasing a tornado in El Reno, relatives said.
Writing on Facebook, Jim Samaras confirmed that the trio had been killed:
Thank you to everyone for the condolences. It truly is sad that we lost my great brother Tim and his great son, Paul.
The men who died made a living from researching and recording extreme weather.
