I'm sorry that they died,I'm not that cold-hearted.
However,let's have a dose of reality and common sense here.
What more is there to learn from a tornado to want to chase it?
It touches down,it builds up massive winds,it pretty much destroys and kills everything in it's path.
You can't prevent a tornado from happening nor can you stop one.
Now,I for one believe that storm chasers can be the dumbest people around because these idiots wants to get as close to the damn thing as they possibly can rather than get to safety like everyone else,at least,tries to do.
When I think of storm chasers I think of dogs chasing cars,sooner or later you are going to get killed if you keep it up.

I think much depends on if they are just out there chasing for the thrill or if they are working the storm. Consider how many lives have been saved by the chasers that work for the local stations and by the early warnings that they are able to give because they are trained and because they are "eyes on" and can give more detail that what is seen on radar.
