Lake Co Native Knew Storm Chasers

Share this post

A Region native tells the Times today that if it weren't for a business trip, he could have been in the path of the same tornado that claimed the lives of three storm chasers. Matt Grzych [gher'-zitch], originally from Crown Point, works at Boeing Company, investigating the cause of airplane accidents, and started working with the longtime tornado researchers five years ago when he joined onto the field research program featured on the Discovery Channel's “Storm Chasers”. Tim Samaras, his son Paul and colleague Carl Young were killed in a deadly tornado that hit the Oklahoma City area on Friday, and the National Weather Center says they are believed to be the first fatalities among storm chasers.
