Tornado researcher Sam Hall found herself heading into America's deadliest tornado that destroyed the town of Joplin, Missouri, on her latest storm-chasing trip.

From Warrington, Cheshire, she is the editor of the International Journal of Meteorology but also has to battle a rare genetic condition, Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), in which her skin and internal body linings blister at the slightest knock.

Each year Sam drives herself and her brother Keith thousands of miles across America to experience tornadoes first-hand. Stormchaser: The Butterfly and the Tornado is on BBC Three on Monday, 31 October at 21:00 GMT.

Sam did the Hoghton Tornado investigation back in 2005 it was (it may have been for TORRO but i'm not 100% sure on that) which is why the name sounded so familiar, sadly I missed the BBC Breakfast interview this morning due to commitments but got the programme on the TV listing for tonight.

Watched the program last night, what a girl.

Amazing at her strength of character how she really gets on with life, and drives in storm chasing.

Well done Sam, your an inspiration.
