Adventures in Tornado Alley: The Storm Chasers
With the recent events in Atlanta, we've been trying to do some research on tornados and just what they mean for the US moving forward as a whole. The destructive power of the tornado has always been a source of fear and fascination, and never more so than now, when climate change and extreme weather conditions are constantly in the news.
Across the central United States, the infamous storms of Tornado Alley are fueled by the collision of cold fronts from Canada and warm fronts from the Gulf of Mexico. People have been chasing these storms for decades in pursuit of thrilling experiences, but now a new generation of storm chasers is combining scientific knowledge with powerful images. This book follows Mike Hollingshead and Eric Nguyen on seventeen chases through Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and South Dakota, illustrating the unfolding events with sequential shots and a running commentary by the chasers themselves.
