Response to hedgehog (Reply #9)

17. Most of the meteorologists out there are conducting research.

Usually, the videos and photos are usually part of the same team (meaning the photographers travel with the meteorologists), as it can be useful to see how the video compares with the data collected.

There ARE 'amateur' storm chasers that do it for the thrill. Some are extremely educated, and some are just morons. It's hard to know where to draw the line, or how on earth you would enforce said line if there WERE one. Some seasoned storm chasers DO complain about the road congestion caused by amateurs while chasing storms but I'm at a loss at how you can regulate it. So, for now, I think it's best to just leave well enough alone.
