Demetrius and I traveled through nine states, from South Dakota to Texas, chasing monster storms and tornadoes with students from Ball State University. Over 12 days, we saw many great Supercell Thunderstorms and one tornado in northwest Kansas. I have to say it was my favorite and the most exciting story I’ve covered as a news reporter. However, seeing the tornado damage in Delmont, South Dakota reinforced the fact that tornadoes are still difficult to predict and in a matter of minutes can destroy people’s lives.
Here are some behind the scenes photos and videos from our chase. As you’ll see, when it comes to chasing storms, there’ some down time. So, we had the opportunity to visit some really cool places around the U.S. with the team.
I agree with everyone else
Wow Tom! I ACTUALLY have a fear of storms, Astrophobia. But THIS was very fun to watch! Very fascinating! Do you have any more cool pics of the actual storms? Keep doing awesome! I look forward to channel one every day!
Yes I totally agree that the ruggie should be the next big thing because it can wake you up and you can’t just use your hands you would have to get up completely I love it.
Miss you Channel One dudes!
