Tornado Tours: Thrill Seekers Wanted
Attention Thrill seekers: You are wanted for a ride-along during the summer storm season. Only the most-daring need apply.
Extreme Tornado Tours offer seats available in a passenger van that typically travels about 200 miles per day in search of violent weather.
Jennifer Giordano, pictured above, recently took the tour through parts of Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, and South Dakota. She witnesses five tornadoes on her twister hunting adventure.
“It’s a lot of time in the van, but it’s great,” Giordano said. “We sing to each other, we laugh, we hang out… when we’re getting ready to go on a chase, there’s obviously a lot of energy in the van.”
A week-long chase costs $2,600, plus the cost of meals and airfare and most of the seats are already sold out for this year. reservations are being taken for the 2014 season as well.
