ST. CLOUD – Watching tornadoes is becoming a popular past time, and professional storm chasers says it’s becoming a problem.

Doug Kiesling owns the company StormChasingVideo.com in St. Cloud.  He says cable TV shows have made storm chasing a hot trend among novices.  He says when he’s out watching storms he runs into a lot of gawkers, who are putting themselves in danger, and are also glogging-up traffic for professional storm chasers and trained weather spotters.

Keisling says he’s trained to know how to stay safe.
