Hi guys,

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.

“Never stop the chase when you are near the tornado”

If you live near North Texas you can easily get your chasing career started! Dallas -Fortworth has a lot of activity in very early spring (mainly march) to chase. The storms are weaker and are good for beginners,but don’t always produce tornadoes. It’s still good to get used to conditions of storms! You don’t have to wait as long too!

Hello, my name is Tyler Burton. I’ve just began storm chasing as a hobby, I’ve wanted to do it ever since I was 4. I’m 14, so I only chase locally around town, and I don’t drive a car obviously, but I ride my bike. If you’re interested, I’ve just started a new series on my YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UECYyrXJcU&t=275s

I am 16, will be 17 soon and This will be my first year of real storm chasing. I live in south central Minnesota around Glencoe. I will be chasing with one of my good friends around Minnesota, Wisconsin, South Dakota, and Iowa. We are only going to chase on the days with a high tornado threat, and are hoping we catch some good shots. I run the website www.weatherkannon.org that updates the upper Midwest on Snowstorms and Severe weather. I have a Nikon D3300 and a Camcorder for Recording, Then a mac book pro for radar.
