The meteorology community has lost three of its finest. It’s a powerful reminder of the dangers of storm chasing. I see other amateur students from the National Weather Center out fool-heartily chasing on their own all the time and I’ve always frowned upon it, this is why. Even professionals who have been at this for years are far from safe. Rest in peace, gentlemen.
Best way to go, really.
