embarking on the highest-quality storm chasing tours in North America.
Storm Chasing Adventure Tours has been about technology from day one. We

first to offer The Weather Channel via satellite with the latest severe
weather information from satellite imagery loops,
NEXRAD weather radar loops, and weather maps in the chase vans as
we drove to our daily storm chasing target location. We were also the

take storm chasing tours to a new level of
excitement. Occasionally, we might be chasing with scientists as they track down
tornadoes in Tornado Alley with their Doppler On Wheels. You
may have seen the DOW and Dr. Josh Wurman on many TV shows over
the years. They were present during the May 3rd, 1999 F5 Tornado in
Oklahoma. The DOW measured record high wind speeds of 301 +/- 20 m.p.h.
in the Oklahoma City tornado.
Whether you're looking for the thrill of the chase or the beauty of

most exciting experiences in your life.
