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.
