This video is from YouTube and shows video clips from storms and tornadoes. It has not been filmed during an organised storm chasing tour but shows some of the rage Mother Nature can release and what you might experience during a tour.
Imagine one of those hot summer days. One of those days that ends with an amazing display of thunder and lightning in the afternoon. Are you the type of person that will stand in the window looking at it, amazed by the show?
Now, forget everything you know about the thunderstorms and lightning shows you have seen so far. What you would experience during a storm chasing tour is completely different. It is not about a bit of thunder of or a dozen lightning strikes before the thunderstorm evaporates 15 minutes later. Storm chasing is about those monster storms that haunt the US Midwest every spring and summer. It is about those long lived supercells that hover isolated over the green fields like spaceships dropping hail the size of oranges and producing tornadoes capable of lifting cars and houses from the ground.
A common denominator for the people that choose to go on storm chasing tours in the USA is the fascination of the incredible power that resides in the sea of air above us. And nowhere in the world is it as powerful as it is in the Midwest during spring and summer. These storms will produce things that will have you struggling to believe your eyes!
Storm chasing is all about experiencing these types of storms, at a safe distance. It is an adventure you will never ever forget. If you are the type of person who will watch a lightning show at home, you owe it to yourself to once try to experience the real deal, at least once in your life. This website is all about helping you take that first step.
