Storm Chasers: The Stunning Skies Of Tornado Alley

Author(s): Ron Stenz
This book will take you through the ferocious storms and aweinspiring skies of “Tornado Alley” through the eyes of a storm chaser and tornado researcher who travels there each year attempting to witness and better understand arguably the most extreme weather on the planet.

Ominous skies, imposing thunderstorms, strong tornadoes, destructive winds, damaging hail, and breathtaking landscapes were all part of the author’s storm chasing adventures traveling throughout this unforgiving, yet beautiful region of the world.

Despite having no truly agreed upon geographic boundaries, the Great Plains and portions of the Midwest are often included in the colloquialism, “Tornado Alley.”

See the jaw dropping results as shear, lift, instability, and moisture all come together in abundance above vast and open landscapes to create stunning scenes unlike anywhere else in the world.


Ron Stenz is a meteorology professor at the College of DuPage (weather.cod.edu) who leads multiple educationally focused storm chasing trips each spring and summer. His photography focuses on capturing the vivid storms of Tornado Alley for use in the classroom teaching about severe weather and forecasting. As an active tornado researcher using supercomputer simulations to try to better understand one of weather’s most powerful processes, Ron travels the plains each year in search of violent storms, because there is still no substitute for witnessing the true power of nature in person.
