Gary England, Oklahoma TV Weather Legend

Murrow award for coverage of a tornado event.

In 1981, Gary became the first person in history to use Doppler radar for direct warnings to the public.  Besides appearing in the Steven Spielberg movie, "TWISTER", he has long been a sought after consultant for tornado weather specials produced by national and international television channels, appearing in over 60 such productions.

Tornado Trackers, Storm Chasers

Tornado Trackers was founded in May 2013 when three friends created a joint twitter account to keep friends and family updated on chases.

Since then, all three have worked together to maintain Tornado Trackers, both in the field and through social media, with the simple goal of sharing their enthusiasm for all things weather. At the heart of what they do lies a complete fascination with storms and a genuine excitement to be a part of the larger community of weather fanatics worldwide.

Their footage has been broadcast on many networks including ABC, NBC, CBS, The Weather Channel, CNN and The National Geographic. Was recently identified by WIRED magazine as one of the top storm chasers to follow on Twitter.
