As the storm got closer, lightning fell a few hundred meters from us, and hail whitened the streets in minutes. Most of the time they develop at night, when it is easier for us storm chasers to photograph lightning associated with waterspouts or tornadoes. The truth is that storm chasing is quite dangerous, especially to those who set out to chase storms without acknowledging the risks, or respecting nature, or doing their research. But one day soon I aim to expand my storm chasing journey beyond Italy’s horizons. My hope is to one day join a team of storm chasers in the USA and around the world, working with The Weather Channel or National Geographic.
