I so enjoyed my first experience of stormchasing that I vowed I would do it again one year, so I saved up my pennies and from April 28th until May 9th, 2008, I went to the USA again to chase storms and hopefully more tornadoes in the Mid West. I flew from London, England to Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas and chased with the Netweather chase team. BBC meteorologist Michael Fish also chased with us during this time and this section documents all the activity and my feelings during the tour.
The daily JOURNAL with details of what we got up to (LARGE document!).
Lots of PHOTOS taken on the tour - grouped together on several pages.
A page of VIDEO links on Youtube of my footage taken during the 10 days.
We travelled approximately 3500 miles in 10 days, which is a bit less than average, this is because we did not have to visit many different states to see storms and also had quite a few down days!
ENHANCED FUJITA TORNADO SCALE (since 1st Feb 2007)
EF0– WIND SPEEDS: 65 to 85 mph DAMAGE: Light - peels surface off some roofs; some damage to gutters or siding; branches broken off trees; shallow-rooted trees pushed over. Confirmed tornadoes with no reported damage (i.e. those that remain in open fields) are always rated EF0..
