Tornado Alley, USA - markhumpage
The northern territories of Tornado Alley were busy in 2008. Iowa, in particular, had an active year. After spending much of the afternoon chasing a tornado and supercell storm this opportunity arose as we pulled over to take some photos. A fire truck pulled up and the crew engaged us in conversation. Not uncommon in Tornado Alley this time of year. Bonafide stormchasers are the equivalent of a fifth emergency service. I could not resist getting the fire truck in the frame, with supercell in the background. American truck and vehicles enjoy so much character
