Tornadoes are both exciting and terrifying; storm chasers know this firsthand. They place themselves in harm's way to study these often violent storms. Most storm chasers are scientists who hope to gather information about wind speed and direction in order to predict the path a tornado will travel. Readers will learn what storm chasers do, how tornadoes form, and what to do if a tornado is approaching. Photographs and scientific illustrations support the text.
