TornadoChat.com was originally founded in 2009 by Andy Gaberielson. Andy was known as one of the best extreme tornado videographers around. He also was the founder of FindTheTornado.com which was the site for his chase team. Sadly, Andy was killed by a wrong way driver on Feb 4th 2012 in Oklahoma.
It was one of Andy’s dreams to have TornadoChat.com to be one of the Go-To places for all weather enthusiasts to interact and share their common passion. With the blessing of Andy’s dad, Greg, and the help and support of Kory Hartman, and Gary Christensen, we decided to keep TornadoChat and FindTheTornado up. The goal of this site is to honor Andy as a memorial and to have a place where many can share in their memories and thoughts of Andy
Thanks & Enjoy the site,
