Growing up in Oklahoma, I developed a deep-rooted love of dramatic weather. While I’m certainly never hoping for violent storms that impact life and property, it seems that Mother Nature has not gotten that memo this spring — as tornadoes have erupted across the country throughout April.
Luckily, we have meteorologists and storm chasers that do their best to predict the unpredictable and keep all of us safe. If you want to keep tabs on severe weather, Discovery Channel‘s Storm Chasers teams are currently traveling the country in their ongoing efforts to learn more about weather and provide early warnings to local officials and reporters when severe storms surface. You can keep tabs on their teams and others across the U.S. with the Storm Chasers Storm Tracker page on Discovery.com.
