Chasing Winds: A Breezy History of Storm Chasing Culture

June 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Storm chasing has become a widespread activity over the years, involving amateur weather observers, photographers, and meteorologists. Beginning with one individual in 1956, the history of storm chasing includes humble roots, personal adventure, scientific achievement, and tragedy. The culture fosters a fascination with extremes in atmospheric phenomena. Journalist and filmmaker Blake Naftel will share visual excerpts centered in and around West Michigan and Kent County. Historical tornadoes and severe weather events will also be included in the presentation.
