Matt Biddle

I was saddened to learn that Matt Biddle, a veteran in the storm chasing community, passed away last night (April 10). Matt was a prominent figure in storm chasing in the 1990s era and beyond. He participated in the VORTEX research project, and worked as a consultant for the movie "Twister". His distinctive El Camino chase vehicle was a fixture on the Plains in the 90s.
