During the afternoon of May 19th, 2010, supercell thunderstorms formed along a warm front/outflow boundary and tracked east through northern Oklahoma. This was the first Tornado we intercepted that day, and also the most photogenic.

On March 2nd 2008, chase season began with a short trek to southwest Oklahoma. We took the opportunity to test out some new equipment and found quite a few bugs to work out before the next chase! It was still great to get out.
Launched New Version of Site
Submitted on 2007-07-24 at 12:22:14
We just launched a newer, cleaner version of the web-visualization tool (aka the website). It is still being modified quite a bit, so please pardon the messes that crop up.
Work is now beginning on filling the database with useful information so that the site isn't completely empty. Please be patient as this is a VERY long process. We will be completing a thorough documentation of the 2007 season in the next month, and will then move backward in time to fill in previous seasons.
Database Design Completed
Submitted on 2007-07-01 at 08:01:53
Design of the ChaseManager database system is now complete. With 49 tables, it will allow a user to track everything from a CF card serial number, to thier vehicle statistics, to storm events witnessed. The database is designed to be very extensible and will work for a virtually unlimited combination of chasers, vehicles, equipment, chase vacations, chase days, driving days, hotel stays, fuel stops, storm events, gps logs, ...well you get the point.
Now, work begins on overhauling the data visualization application (website).
