Live Storm Chasing

Live Storm Chasing lets extreme weather followers view live streams from storm chasers across the country, to see the on-the-ground stories behind the radar display. Recent streams on the site have shown flooding from Hurricane Ida, rescue efforts for the California Caldor Fire, and tornadoes in Iowa. On the "Map" linked in the page header, users can view a U.S. map with current live streams and footage from recent streams. Using the Map Overview tool, users can overlay active weather alerts, storm reports, and radar to see current weather events and view footage from different locations impacted by each event. On the "Discover" page, users will find archived footage from recent live streams. Clicking on any video will lead to the project's YouTube channel (Live Storms Media), which has storm chasing videos dating back 10 years and playlists organized by weather event. In addition to storms and fires, streamers post footage of other events such as eclipses and volcanic eruptions. Users can also download the Live Storm Chasing mobile app to stream their own footage. Viewers should note the live streams are not censored and may include mature language and disturbing images.
