Wherever there are tornados there will be storm chasers. We witnesses the tragedy recently in Oklahoma when four storm chasers lost their life near EL Reno, Oklahoma covering a tornado that grew to an EF-5. The victims found themselves too close to the action and paid the ultimate price. The chaser community should learn from this incident and re-examine their methods to make sure what they do is the right thing to do and not to put themselves in a bad situation. Too often the roads get packed with traffic of people wanting to get that perfect picture. Chaser wannabe's who jump in their car with their camera in one hand and the steering wheel in the other don't typically understand the weather and how fast it can change. They put themselves and others in situations that could be very tragic. There is no such thing as "Safe Storm" chasing. Let somebody else get that tornado picture you are better off finding a safe place when tornado warnings are issued. No photo of video is worth putting one's life at risk.
