Storm Chasers and Spotters
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     Caption: The National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) has a fleet of cars with surface measuring equipment and signs saying "U.S. Government NSSL Severe Storm Spotter."
 
2     Have you ever looked into the sky and watched clouds float overhead? Have you ever wondered where those clouds go when you can't see them anymore? Imagine a job where you got in a car and followed clouds wherever they went. That's what storm chasers do!
 
3     People who follow storm clouds are called storm chasers. Some are professional. Some people do it just for fun. Storm chasers like to look for big storms. Big storms can be beautiful. They can be very scary, too. Storm chasers like to watch storms. Sometimes they take pictures of the storms.
 
4     Some storm chasers are scientists. They travel all over looking for bad weather. When they find bad weather, they watch the storm. They take pictures and make videos. They measure the speed of the wind. They measure how fast the storm is moving over the ground.
