When the tornado warnings alarm, the natural instinct of most of us is to head for shelter. But some people are called by the sirens' song of beauty and power of severe weather. This unique breed of individuals run into the storms to photograph and video, as well as alert and stand prepared to help with search and rescue. The information they provide can give experts great insight into the storms, to help quantify them and improve future predictions. 

But mostly, the  are drawn to the thrill of the hunt, and the majesty of nature's most awesome force. Today we talk to two local storm chasers. Allison Marshall, an energetic young woman and Stephen Locke, a soft-spoken, calm, experinced man, very different and yet very much alike. Both professional photographers. Both compelled by the weather to leave their shelter and ride into the teeth of the beast. 

Energetic, fun, funny, powerful and compelling. Must-hear destination radio.
