Storm Chaser Risks Life To Take Breathtaking Pictures


COMM: Most people’s natural instinct when they see a tornado approaching is to move
very fast in the opposite direction. Roger: Here we go! Here we go! COMM: But professional storm chaser, Roger Hill, has made a career out of actively pursuing
extreme weather formations, like hurricanes and super-cells. Roger: Every storm and tornado that you see is totally different from any other one that
you’ve actually saw. I’m like a kid, it’s a candy store. Every one that I see, I get
really excited about. COMM: 56-year-old Roger, from Colorado, USA, captured these images during the 2013 storm
season. Together with wife, Karen, the pair have covered nearly 5,000 miles from Texas to the Canadian
Prairies since the start of the year. Roger has witnessed 670 tornados in his career and has vowed not to retire until he hits
1,000. Roger: It never gets old. I hopefully will be chasing storms until I’m physically unable
to face any more. COMM: Until that time, Roger will continue his storm chasing, documenting the ferocity
and power of the elements.

    These incredible images were captured by professional storm-chaser Roger Hill during this year's hurricane season. The 56-year-old zigzagged his way across the country with wife Caryn and tours of amateur storm enthusiasts in search of extreme weather formations like tornadoes and super-cells. The pair covered nearly 50,000 miles during this year's storm season, traveling everywhere from Texas and the Canadian Prairie provinces to Montana and Illinois.

    Thanks for sharing this video!

    I was always stuck to comfort zone and could not move a inch towards any thing new!

    The result is that , I was paid less, was overweight also!
    But, my mother pushed me to
    1) listen to motivation videos
    2) track my issues using "risks" an Android app by lokesh
     
    by this, I am now a far better risk taker and the result is that I am having more energy
