I don't usually take tornado selfies but when I do...I make sure it is from the best tornado outbreak of this decade! Dodge City, KS, of May 22nd 2016.
So, this is me and of the tornadoes of the day. My name is Christoffer Björkwall and although I chase tornadoes in the USA I am from Sweden, living in Malmö, Sweden. One of the most common questions I get is "How come you started chasing storms?" and the answer is that I want to #KansasStateUniversity in 2003/2004 as an exchange student and heard a lot about these extreme storms and got intrigued. Later on in 2008 I started youtubing storm videos and decided to go on my first storm chasing tour in 2009. In addition, the movie "Twister" (1994) was a great inspiration as well.
By the way, I have been saving up on the photos from this incredible Dodge City-day as I want to keep this account growing with increasingly better photos, so consider this a teaser :) I will tell you more about (and show more photos of) this day later on.
