Story
Tagline
Oklahoma Storm Chaser
Introduction
Growing up a Mid-Michigan native, Ben Holcomb experienced severe weather in many forms from severe thunderstorms to blizzards and ice storms, which sparked his interest in weather and storm chasing. At age 20, Ben took interest in Amateur Radio (Callsign WX8BEN) and the Lansing, MI Skywarn program. It wasn't until 2 years later in the fall of 2007 that Ben would begin actively chasing storms and tornadoes.

8 years, over 100,000 miles and approximately 125 tornadoes later, Ben is still chasing storms and has relocated from Lansing, Michigan to the middle of tornado alley in Norman, Oklahoma where he works as an IT Specialist for the University of Oklahoma School of Meteorology. His first tornado came on May 2nd, 2008 near Memphis in the town of Turrell, Arkansas.

Ben has worked with numerous media outlets from local TV stations to national news networks and had his storm video shown worldwide. He has been featured on The Weather Channel, CNN, and Fox News.

In his spare time, Ben enjoys riding roller coasters, fishing, hockey and travelling.
