Matt Friskey is part of a local storm chasing team called Heartland Storm Chasers. His car is outfitted with GPS and radar on a laptop, dash cams, regular cameras and a HAM radio.
Friskey and others believe it would be difficult to regulate storm chasing. He says his group feels it already has enough training and safety precautions.
Friskey and others local chasers say they have escape routes planned and try to keep several miles from a storm.
Friskey's team went to Oklahoma City and almost got stuck in traffic like other chasers did. Now they're reconsidering chasing storms in metro areas.
