New Chevrolet commercial features renowned storm chasers

We had to write about it! In the video below, watch a new Chevrolet commercial which features renowned storm chasers, Roger and Caryn Hill.   

You can read the video’s description below.

“Roger Hill loves severe weather. And over the past three decades, he has personally witnessed more than 650 tornadoes – more than anyone on earth. After years of chasing in his free time, he turned his passion into a career, starting Silver Lining Tours. Now, together with his wife Caryn, he guides groups across the country to witness severe weather.

 It’s his dream job, but it’s also demanding; during storm season, Roger and Caryn are on the road for more 100 days straight, driving hundreds of miles per day in pursuit of Mother Nature.

But before the season begins, they go storm chasing as a couple. It’s a promise they made to each other, a yearly adventure that takes them driving across America’s stunning landscape. Watch as Roger and Caryn Hill traverse several states hunting the perfect storm.”

The video was brought to our attention by Roger Hill, however the commercial was posted by CNN. The commercial is currently unlisted on YouTube.

Meteorologist Jamie Simpson tells viewers to stop complaining about Tornado warnings interrupting ‘The Bachelorette’

“GOD BLESS THIS MAN! He had the balls to do it live on the air!” Jamie Simms, website lead.

Last night, a large and destructive Tornado swept through Dayton, Ohio (OH). However, that wasn’t the only storm Dayton residents were facing.

Fox 45 meteorologist, Jamie Simpson launched into a passionate excoriation of the viewers during a live Tornado warning broadcast when people started to complain on social media that the warning broadcast was interrupting The Bachelorette. BOO HOO!

Let’s starting from the beginning! A Tornado watch was issued last night through to 2;00am, local time for OH. The Fox 45 meteorologist was giving live updates on the Tornado, which would cause significant damage to the Dayton area later on that night…

…Then he started to see complaints come in on social media.

In the video below, listen to what Simpson had to say on the complains – transcription can be read underneath.

“Just checking on social media, we have (some) folks complaining already, ‘just go back to the show’.

No, we’re not going back to the show folks! This is a dangerous situation, okay?

It’s your own neighbourhood. I’m sick and tired of people complaining about this. Our job here is to keep you safe and that’s what we’re going to do.

Some of you complain that this is all about my ego. Stop, okay? Just stop right now. It’s not! I’m done with you people, I really am. This is pathetic!”

Simpson later on went to apologise and say; “it really bothers me that people don’t care other people’s safety around here”.

Social media users – in particular Twitter – took to the platform to praise Simpson for his work following what has been called, ‘”the scariest night of their lives” – read relating tweets below.

Another video of this event can be watched below.

RELATED: Videos of the Violent EF4 and EF5 Tornadoes on April 27, 2011

The April 2011 super Tornado outbreak was one of the biggest, deadliest and most destructive severe weather and Tornado outbreaks in the U.S. Suffice to say some of a handful of the Tornadoes that touched down during the outbreak struck heavily populated areas.

Regardless of alerts well in advance and short term warnings, the Tornadoes/storms killed three hundred and twenty one people and injured almost three thousand people, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA – Storm prediction Center – SPC).

Nearly three hundred and fifty Tornadoes touched down in around of the south, Midwest and northeast states of the U.S. A majority of the Tornadoes that touched down during the April 2011 super outbreak happened on the 27th April, according to the National Weather Service.

The most destructive Tornado, a multiple-vortex EF-4 Tornado, which took the lives of sixty five people and injured more than one thousand people alone swept through Tuscaloosa and Birmingham, Alabama during the afternoon/evening on the 27th April.

Suffice to say, within a matter of minutes, ten per cent of Tuscaloosa was destroyed and more than one thousand six hundred people were left homeless – including the students of University of Alabama. It has to be said, the above mentioned Tornado was one point five miles wide with winds of one hundred and ninety miles per hour. 

The Tornado was on the ground for more than eighty miles.

It has to be stated: The same supercell thunderstorm that produced the Tuscaloosa and Birmingham Tornado went onto to spawn other Tornadoes that “skipped” along a three hundred and eighty mile long path from Mississippi to North Carolina.

Three EF-5 Tornadoes, twelve EF-4 Tornadoes and twenty one EF-3 Tornadoes struck during the April 2011 super Tornado outbreak. Some of the violent storms coincided areas that were hit with severe weather and Tornadoes earlier in the month. April 2011 was a busy month!

A destructive and deadly Tornado outbreak took place on the 14th – 16th April, when one hundred and seventy eight Tornadoes touched down and resulted in the deaths of almost fourty people across parts of the Plains, south and eastern seaboard.

In closing, April 2011 saw a record seven hundred and fifty Tornadoes strike the U.S, according to the SPC – records go back to 1950.

Lawsuit filed against The Weather Channel in storm chasers’ fatal wreck

We will not being making comment at this time. We will making comment when the lawsuit has gone through the courts.

Mum of a National Weather Service (NWS) storm spotter (spotter) killed in a 2017 car crash has filed a one hundred and twenty five million dollar lawsuit against the Weather Channel – organisation that hired the storm chasers involved in the fatal car wreck.

Photo credit: Live 5

Karen Di Piazza filed the lawsuit Tuesday in federal district court in Lubbock, Texas. Piazza’s son, Corbin Lee Jaeger – who was 25 – was killed on the 28th March, 2017 in a two-vehicle wreck on County Road 419 – just west of Spur and southeast of Lubbock.

You can read the lawsuit here

The lawsuit suggests The Weather Channel’s on-air personalities Kelley Williamson and Randall Yarnall ran stop signs and traffic lights and broke other traffic laws to capture video for their show, ‘Storm Wranglers’

Officials at The Weather Channel knew of their dangerous and reckless driving habits – according to the lawsuit.

The duo ran a stop sign on County Road 419, travelling at seventy miles per hour to video a Tornado for The Weather Channel – according to lawsuit. 

Williamson and Yarnall were also killed in the crash. Jaeger, a certified spotter for the NWS was driving away from the Tornado when his vehicle was hit, the lawsuit suggests. 

“We are saddened by the loss of Corbin Jaeger, Kelly Williamson and Randy Yarnall. They were beloved members of the weather community and our deepest sympathies go out to the families and loved ones of all involved. We cannot comment on pending litigation.”
