Discovery Channel's Storm Chasers Make Stops in Area

Believe it or not, there are a few people who are hoping for some severe weather in the area and if you watch the Discovery Channel, you might know who they are.

Believe it or not, there are a few people who are hoping for some severe weather in the area and if you watch the Discovery Channel, you might know who they are.

Stars of the TV show "Storm Chasers" have set up shop in East Grand Forks.

Sean Casey from the show says they noticed storms forming in the southwest three days ago.

He says it probably won't create a tornado for them to chase with this their huge, 14,000 lb. "tornado intercept vehicle."

There's another reason the storm chasers are in town. They're holding a fundraiser for the victims of the tornado in Joplin, Missouri.

If you want to help out, just be in East Grand Forks across from Cabela's Wednesday between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
