Storm Chasing Group to Deliver the Adventure of a Lifetime

Storm Chasing Group to Deliver the Adventure of a Lifetime

ARLINGTON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 04/04/08 -- Texas-based Tempest Tours, Inc. will offer its guests the adventure of a lifetime when the tour group conducts storm chasing operations this spring. The company, headed by three veteran storm chasers, has intercepted 66 tornadoes since 2003. They lead expeditions into Tornado Alley, a region that stretches from Texas to the Dakotas, in search of nature's most spectacular weather.

"Our mission is to introduce the science and romance of storm chasing to guests," said Tempest Tours founder and President Martin Lisius. "The essence of storm chasing has never been captured accurately on TV or in the movies. There are hours of forecasting we conduct each day, the logistics, the beauty of the Great Plains, and the unique characteristics of each storm we intercept. The only way to experience it is to actually do it, to see the incredible dynamics in action firsthand and to smell the sweetness of the rain."

The Tempest Tours senior team is comprised of Lisius, tour director William T. Reid, and lecture guide Dr. Charles Doswell, III. Together, they have amassed more than 60 years of storm chasing experience. Lisius is best known for his high quality motion picture footage of storms as the founder of StormStock, the world's largest storm footage library. Reid is a climatologist and veteran storm chaser. And, Dr. Doswell is a former researcher with the National Severe Storms Laboratory in Norman, Oklahoma and is regarded as one of the top tornado scientists in the world.

"We can't guarantee our guests will actually witness a tornado," Lisius said. "But we can promise them the opportunity to live the life of a real storm chaser for a few days. That in itself is an adventure of a lifetime for many of them," he said.

Tempest Tours will operate eight tours in May and June, the peak of tornado activity in the US. Tours will depart from Dallas - Ft. Worth, Oklahoma City and Denver. Tour fees range from $1,995.00 to $2,895.00 per person for 6, 9 and 10 days of storm chasing. Tempest will offer a classroom tour, a photo tour and a special tour for kids with autism spectrum disorder, in addition to the regular tours.
