Professional storm chasing-Would you do it? Is it worth the risk?

“Professional storm chaser Greg Johnson calls Monday night’s tornado in Manitoba a “monster” and among the top four that he’s ever seen.

The Regina-based host of the CMT show Tornado Hunters had a front-row seat, within 100 metres, of the twister.
