Reminder: Tornadoes are unpredictable killers.

Every spring, severe weather creates havoc across the country, and every spring there are amazing videos and photos.

Now-a-days, there are pictures and videos of storms everywhere. This is partially because people have smartphones on them at all times so capturing a storm and sharing it online is easy.

The thing people forget is that the cool tornado photos and videos are either from professional chasers, people who just happened to be in the wrong place at the right time, or idiots.

Tornadoes are unpredictable. They can change direction with no notice, they can drop debris (like trees or vehicles) on you, and storms can spur new tornadoes at any time.

Tornadoes shouldn’t be taken lightly. If you’re chasing them, you need to realize that you’re putting your life on the line along with anyone who may be with you.

Yes, tornadoes are amazing, but they’re also unforgiving and deadly.
