‘Tornado Junkies’ try to build twister-proof van

They call it Dorothy: The Tornado Junkies’ Intercept Vehicle will have hydraulic flaps to keep it on the ground.

What would happen if you could take “The A-Team” and “Storm Chasers” and put them together in a blender? You’d get something like Tornado Junkies.

As their name suggests, this trio of young men are crazy about tornadoes. So crazy they think they can build a tornado-proof van.

Yes, this $5,000 Kickstarter project wants your money to build an armor-plated Ford to carry these Des Moines dudes down Tornado Alley chasing twisters.

They want to get as close as possible to the devastating power of tornadoes. Indeed, they want to park in a tornado. But it’s not for fun.

They’re doing us all a public service: “When we chase, we report weather conditions through storm spotter systems, the National Weather Service, and social media, which aids in the storm warning process,” they write on their campaign page.
