2005 Storm Chasing Events

Storm Chasing Event Archive > 2005 Events >

SEASON SUMMARY: The 2005 spring storm chasing season got off to a relatively slow start in April and May, with the 12th of May providing the only good tornado day for chasers out for their annual trips during that time. Activity ramped up in early June, however, with several memorable tornado/supercell days from South Dakota to Texas. Many chasers traveled to the Gulf Coast to document record-breaking hurricanes during the late summer and fall.
