Hey weather crazy friends! My name is Eric Kelly and this will be my 3rd year joining the SLT team as a tour guide! Weather has been a fascination for me since I was a little kid growing up outside of Detroit Michigan. I was chasing storms as soon as I could drive and it has become more involved year after year! My best year was 2016 where we I saw 16 tornado’s in a period of one week! While not on tour with SLT, I am out chasing on my own in “HailNo” my Subaru Outback.
In the real world, I serve as a National Director for Youth for Christ leading their programs that reach teens in over 190 juvenile detention centers across the USA. When not chasing I love hiking, traveling, and random household projects. I live just west of Colorado Springs with my wife Megan who gracious allows me to spend days and weeks on the plains chasing.
My Stats: Years chasing 20, Years driving with SLT: 3, number of tornadoes witnessed: 75+
