Olivia told us about here adventures this Spring as part of Dr. Josh Durkee’s work at Western Kentucky University. She travelled with Dr. Durkee, Dr. Grady Dixon and seven colleagues, including her fiance, more than 7,200 miles across 12 states. The purpose of the trip was to provide meteorology students the learning experience of locating and predicting convective storms.

The most notable tornadic conditions they encountered was the EF-5 that struck Joplin, MO., the single deadliest tornado on record.

The gallery below shows the fabulous photos taken by the group. We thank Dr. Durkee for sharing these with you.
