Providing time to individuals that are in the middle of severe weather situations that can lead to tornadoes is vital. The goal of storm chasers is to collect important data that will be able to help them increase the warning times so people have more time to get their families to safety and avoid being stuck in the middle of a tornado. One of the projects currently being used to gather information about tornadoes and storm systems is known as the Vortex 2 project. This new project is massive as several vehicles equipment with Doppler radar, cameras, and other devices are being deployed to surround the storm system and gather data outside the tornado but complexly circling it.
