DISCLAIMER: Remember storm chasing exposes chasers to
many hazardous and potentially deadly weather conditions such as lightning,
dangerous roads, damaging winds, hail, and flying debris which puts the chaser's
life at risk, particularly those who
have little or no experience and/or storm structure education. Learning to deal
with these is best done by understanding supercells and thunderstorms, and riding
with an experienced chaser before attempting to chase on their own. The author
of these pages does not encourage storm chasing and is therefore not responsible
for any actions as a result of what is seen here!
