Jim Leonard is one of the pioneers of hurricane chasing. Jim has been known for being in the heart of the action, and sometimes almost too close. If you’re not familiar with Jim’s work, you may want to visit his website and Youtube channel. Chances are if you’re a weather fanatic, you’ve seen some of his video clips shown on The Weather Channel and Discovery Channel, just to name a couple.
Unfortunately, Jim has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Jim’s friends have designed fundraiser T-shirts with all proceeds going directly to Mr. Leonard. 28storms has no direct affiliation with Jim or fundraiser efforts, but we feel that as fans of his work, helping get the word out was the least we could do.
