Dustin Mazzio became an amateur storm chaser when he and a friend set out to intercept storm cells forming in Kansas on Saturday. On his 12-hour journey, he took pictures and video of supercells, funnel clouds and vortexes as they formed. He even recorded the development of a full blown tornado as it tracked through farmland for nine minutes. He was recording from just three miles away.
