Storm Chasing
« on: May 22, 2016, 05:02:42 PM »
Besides being a hopeless roulette junkie, I have other interests (shock, shock...LOL). I have always been a weather fanatic (especially severe weather). There is an organization here in the USA that chases severe weather (i.e.. tornadoes). They provide live steaming as they chase which can be viewed at severestudios (dot) com - they have a chase map which you can click icons and receive their live feeds. Below is a sample screenshot of a chase just a few days ago of a tornado in Oklahoma. The US in now in the peak of tornado season, and this coming week is forecast to be very active...

Sheridan,

I'm a storm chaser too.  I'm here in the Midwest USA.  Let's chase!

There are some in the general population, and a few chasers have gotten whacked also. The chasers know better....sometimes they get too close - that's how a lot of them get it. You got to have a way out of the situation before you get in to one. You could get stuck on a muddy dirt road....but that doesn't stop a tornado.

Chasers chase for many reasons. First is for $$$...if they get a really good video, some media outlets will pay handsomely for it. Secondly.....some do it for scientific research.... others (possibly the majority) do it for the thrill aspect, which is kind of a downside. There are many ways to get a high....this is a very hazardous way to do it.

I prefer to chase the ladies.

Like storm chasing, lady chasing can also be very hazardous.. :D
