(CBS) — A group of people who chase violent weather as a hobby are making donations next week to the tornado victims in Rochelle and Fairdale, reports WBBM’s Mike Krauser.

Chicagoan Adam Lucio is one of 15 storm chasers across the county who got together three years ago and formed Storm Assist.

“We enjoy documenting and witnessing the weather but unfortunately it comes with this ugly side. There’s a very devastating human impact so a group of storm chasers got together and decided to form an organization to give back to the communities that get affected by these storms,” Lucio said.

The storm chasers will tell you they are impacted by what they go out and risk their lives at times to document. On one hand, there is the adrenaline rush of experiencing tornadoes up close and on the other, they are also witnessing the devastation to life and property.

On Monday, Lucio will be dropping by the Rochelle and Kirkland fire departments with $2000 in gift cards to be distributed to those who could use the help.
