Tornado season has started in a big and tragic way in the last 48 hours. Harrisburg, Illinois was decimated by a twister on Wednesday. Today, tornadoes hit Alabama and the southeast, including a prison in Alabama.
Tornado season is also the start of storm-chasing season.
I recommend the website, Chaser TV, which is a directory of storm chasers by location, with links to their live video feeds.
