My name is Matt, and I am the head of TN Storm Chasers. Very few people in our group, being that I’ve moved away and haven’t had the chance to get the word out about the group. Back on topic however, I am 17, going to be 18 on June 30th, and I have participated in a few chases, such as one in Portland, Maine where I caught a rain wrapper on the way home from Massachusetts. It was bad, being that I was caught in traffic as people decided to do the stupid thing and get under the over passes. I was yelling for people to move, and when they finally did, it was too late, and I missed the tornado. You can probably imagine my disappointment with all those people under the overpasses. Tornadoes sparked my interest when I was about 5 years old, and continued all through my life, even into April 2011, where I was living in Tennessee. I’m surprised I survived, being that a few of the tornadoes was at night. My house didn’t take it too nicely. We lost parts of the roof, and the porch was messed up. But I survived.
Thanks for taking the time to listen. I hope you guys have a good day.
