Tornado Safety - Wadena Video

July 18, 2012
Wadena to Kelvington Tornado Event In Saskatchewan

Craig Hilts of Prairie Fire Photography caught some amazing images of the tornado and resulting curiosity that can sometimes accompany a chase of this kind.


This photo caused a major fire storm of debate on the Facebook group and I thought it was important to document what is going on out there. Children are seen here waiting to see the coming tornado.


In the United States, this type of thing has become very common and the irresponsibility sometimes goes right into the stratosphere of stupidity as seen below:


PLEASE USE COMMON SENSE!
Live streams and experienced storm chasers are out there so you don't have to be. Watch the footage from the safety of your basement during severe weather!

About Me

My photo

Storm & Wildlife Photographer.
NON-PROFIT Volunteer Storm Caster

Retail Marketing Team - Hudson's Bay Company

Kayaking, bird watching, fishing and wildlife photography are my summer hobbies when waiting for storms. See my adventures on YouTube!

I build a daily map of storm risk for the Canadian Prairies to accomplish two things. One, translate the complications of the meteorologists into something simple that the public can understand clearly. Two, become a buffer on social media to either raise the alarm and calm the masses depending on the level of hype.

Storm chasing is limited nowadays to a few photo ops by the lake at Wascana in Regina or up north at Pratt. Generally, I spend more time nowcasting for chasers around Saskatchewan which saves on gas and keeps me safe in my studio/bunker.

Once storm season comes to an end in August, gaming season then begins. Find me on Twitch.com/jaredmysko playing non-violent games like Forza and FIFA.

Thanks for all the likes, shares, comments and encouragement. Stay safe and enjoy the weather!
