I am excited to invite our supporters on this year's storm chase.
Storm spotting & chasing with live streaming is expected to commence around the 15th of April until around 20th June 2019.

HOW TO ACCESS THE LIVE STREAM:
Live streaming is accessed through our supporter portal which is managed via Patreon.

patreon

You can instantly access the US live streaming via the Patreon GOLD supporter's Tier.

When you support me via Patreon, payment for that calendar month or part therof is processed immediately.

For those who have remained as ACTIVE supporters on the Patreon Bronze Tier for over 8 continuous months or the Patreon Silver Tier for over 4 continuous months, you will be contacted on how to access the 2019 US Live Stream. This is a thank you to those who have committed to supporting me for the long term with my work and storm chasing in Australia.

STREAMING DURATION AND FREQUENCY:
Live streaming is expected to take place only when all the following apply:

  • There is storm activity that warrants interception and tracking.
  • I am in a position to intercept severe weather (geographic location and travel times / safe repositioning permitting).
  • I am well rested and can undertake this activity safely.
  • Vehicle, camera equipment and uplink connectivity are working without technical issues.

It's expected there will be between 30 and 50 live streams that will take place across all three months.

STREAMING ARCHIVE & SENSITIVE CONTENT:

  • Once a live stream has completed, it will be available for replay for up to 14 days post broadcast. (For private viewing by the supporter only)
  • If sensitive content is captured which is not suitable for replay, an archive stream may be removed from private view.
  • DVR Mode will be activated on the dedicated YouTube live stream, so up to 4 hours rewind may be available when live.
