--- LIVE STREAMING & CHASING EXPECTED TO CONCLUDE ON THE 25th June, 2021 ---

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 10th of April until around 24th June 2021.


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

Long term / ongoing Bronze and Silver Tier Patreon Supporters may qualify for special access to US Streaming. Please read the Patreon Tier descriptions for details.
Those who qualify would have received an email on the 1st April 2021.

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 40 live streams that will take place across all three months.

STREAMING ARCHIVE & SENSITIVE CONTENT:

  • Once a live stream has finished, 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 immediately 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.
