Storm Chaser

Storm chasers often put themselves in harm's way for the sake of science and to keep the public informed about threatening weather brewing on the horizon. They observe, document, measure and judge all elements of a storm and report their findings to organizations such as the National Weather Service or the weather department of local television stations. Storm chasers and storm spotters are not the same thing. Storm spotters are usually volunteers who are positioned around a city, and who observe and report to a local civil defense agency via hand-held receivers. Unlike storm chasers, storm spotters do not "chase" storms; they remain in the same spot and do not often take photographs like many storm chasers do.
