Who Am I?
I am Mike Thornton, I chase storms mainly in Oklahoma, Kansas, and Texas. I first became interested in severe weather when a F-3 tornado struck the town of Stoughton, Wisconsin on August 18th, 2005. The Stoughton F-3 caused 42 million dollars in damage and killed one person. About 8 years later, I would chase for the first time ever in South Central Wisconsin. With only a phone to use for radar and video I set out on my first chase.
The year is now 2019 and I have been chasing severe weather for 7 years. I've chased 6 tornadoes including the Elk City tornado which was an EF-2 that went through Southeastern parts of Elk City. If you ever see me on the road chasing, don't be afraid to come up to me and say hello. See you all under the meso!
