Storm Rush, an independent storm chaser blog and resource site, announces a fundraising campaign (http://www.kickstarter.com/
gold) to document the ever-growing storm chasing community. The film will cover the full spectrum of severe weather phenomena: from drought relief to an untapped niche in the travel and tourism industry.
“I can’t put into words why I moved across the country to Tornado Alley. I can’t tell you why the chasers I know share that same passion.,” said Rachel Sager, founder of Storm Rush. “But I can show you and that’s what Storm Rush is all about.”

There are thousands of storm chasers and weather spotters around the world. Programs such as SKYWARN (http://skywarn.org/
) and Spotter Network (http://www.spotternetwork.org/
) bring chasing communities together, and help keep avenues of communication intact when in the field. Throughout the film, storm chasers will share their input about how well these communication avenues work. Residents of Tornado Alley affected by the weather will also share their input – both the good and bad – about the severe weather season, and the scientists and tourists that make themselves known during this time.

will bring reality to severe weather beyond the reality shows. It will go in-depth into the lives of storm chasers, the lives of those in severe weather-impacted areas, and the storm chase tours that have begun to spring up all over the United States. If funding is raised by April 14th, filming will begin immediately. Anyone backing the project will receive rewards ranging from updates from the road to a seat on a storm tour in 2014. The Kickstarter project has already launched, and has less than a month to go until filming. For more information, check out the live Kickstarter project: Storm Rush here: http://www.kickstarter.com/
