Stormchaser Jim Leonard passes away - Alex - 11-03-2014 12:55 PM

Just read on the NWS Miami Facebook page that long time storm chaser Jim Leonard passed away.

Quote:We are saddened to learn of the passing of South Florida native Jim Leonard, a hurricane and storm chase icon. He was the first known person to film a clockwise rotating tornado in the northern hemisphere and shot incredible footage of thunderstorms and hurricanes, while also contributing to our science. Jim will be missed in the meteorological community, including us here at NWS Miami.
