Hi there. My name’s Shawn and I’m a certified weather geek. Severe weather is an endlessly fascinating topic, but unfortunately it isn’t always easy to find engaging, accurate information. Myths and misconceptions and all sorts of other inaccurate information have a way of proliferating once they get out there, and I hope that this blog can be a place to correct that. While I’m a bit biased toward tornadoes, I’ll also cover severe weather in all its other forms. If there’s an event you’d like to see covered, or if you have any questions or comments, send me an email or tweet and let me know!
Wherever possible, the material on this blog originates from primary sources — National Weather Service storm surveys and publications, original or reconstructed data and charts, scientific journals, first-hand accounts, contemporary newspapers, etc. If you notice any mistakes, please don’t hesitate to contact me or leave a comment.
