Tom Santillo Stormchaser
Tom Santillo hails from Cleveland, OH and now lives in Norman, OK. Tom is currently working towards a degree in Meteorology at the University of Oklahoma. He is a devoted lover of the atmosphere. When not chasing he eagerly waits for Mother Nature to provide a thunderstorm, snow storm, tornado, or hurricane.
Tom began storm chasing in 1999 and has documented dozens of tornadoes, hundreds of supercells, and multiple winter storms over the past 10 years. Tom's most dangerous and exciting chase occurred on May 8, 2003; he witnessed the F4 Moore, OK tornado as it crossed I-35 just north of his position. His car was sprayed with debris as the tornadic wind-field passed within 20 yards of his vehicle.
Tom has a fiery passion for storm chasing and he will probably continue chasing until he loses his vision or when he no longer has his sanity.
