Texas Storm Chasers covers four basic weather elements that are faced in North Texas: lightning, tornadoes, hail and flooding. The interactive presentation highlights statistics and facts surrounding these elements, focuses on the safety precautions before, during and after severe weather events, and provides tips on how to become involved in the weather knowledge efforts to create a safer, more educated community. The content is illustrated through simple graphics and photos, plus fun video clips of the team’s past chase experiences. Find out more on how the team has continued to provide content and coverage in light of the ongoing global pandemic
