The Storm Chasing Community Suffers Tremendous Loss

The storm chasing community has lost a true pioneer, leader, friend and dedicated scientist - Tim Samaras. I've known Tim for only a few years but quickly came to respect his appreciation for, and approach to severe weather research. He was kind enough to be a guest on my photography podcast during "ChaserCon", a severe weather conference he and Roger Hill created. Tim, his son Paul and fellow chaser Carl Young will be terribly missed. They dedicated, and gave, their lives in an effort to save countless others through their tornado research. Neither the men, nor their work, will be forgotten.
