ABOUT THE BOOK
Huge, towering clouds build up in the sky–it’s a supercell. The Doppler radar indicates that the system is rotating. But is there a funnel? Is it touching the ground? Only a storm chaser can confirm when a tornado is present–and help meteorologists warn nearby towns.
Chasing the Storm looks at the human fascination with weather, specifically storm chasers and why they do what they do. I especially enjoyed the quotes from actual storm chasers. The book also goes on to discuss the following aspects of being a storm chaser:
- A Day in the Life of a Storm Chaser
- What Makes a Tornado?
- What’s going on with the weather?
- Meteorology on the Job
- Official Weather Watchers
- Being a Storm Chaser
