Storm chasing is dangerous. You could be hurt or killed in its pursuit,
especially if you have little or no knowledge of severe storms and their
environment. Chase hazards include but are not limited to heavy rain, flash
flooding, lightning, high winds, large hail, tornadoes, and flying debris.
Hydroplaning on the road and traffic accidents also occur. If you desire to
chase, get informed and educated about weather. Contact your local National
Weather Service Office, and enroll in a SKYWARN training class. Read and view
all of the published information regarding severe weather, thunderstorms, and
tornadoes that you can. You are responsible for educating yourself. Next,
contact an experienced chaser in your area, and arrange to travel with them,
until you've gained sufficient experience to go it alone. Even at that, veteran
chasers get caught in harm's way from time to time. Play it safe. This page is
