Hats off to those storm chasers, whether volunteer or on professional assignment. Their videos and other data they collect may some day provide warnings much more quickly, saving many more lives.

Whew. That thing was a planet-eater. I'm surprised it didn't do more damage.

That chopper pilot deserves a purple heart for his bravery under such conditions.

Actually, that would be a Silver or Bronze Star. Those are awarded for gallantry. Purple hearts are for injuries in combat.
