Accompanied by his wife Danielle, his daughter Cori, and their new canine companion Rayne, the Storm Warriors have a new TV series in the works so everyone can learn and be prepared for severe weather.

A couple of pieces of advice from the Storm Warriors, if you are caught in adverse conditions:

  • If you're in your car, DO NOT drive towards the storm. Drive away from the storm and find a better, more secure structure.
  • Have a "go bag" ready, filled with snacks, water, flashlights, a radio, some cash and a picture of your family in case you get separated.

For more information visit the Storm Warriors website to follow their adventures and print out helpful safety cards on what to do during severe weather.
