February 26, 2017-The Spotter Network, a network of storm spotters, storm chasers, coordinators and public servants, gathered today to pay tribute to Bill Paxton. According to their post on social media “Many storm spotters and chasers have at least some connection to ‘Twister’. A few helped Bill Paxton to form into the character he was in the movie. Many more took his character and either emulated him or took a different direction based on what they saw in the movie. The visibility of storm chasing to the public certainly impacted the avocation many of us enjoy. Our thoughts are with his friends and family. Please join us in spelling out ‘BP’ in western Oklahoma today to remember Bill.”Click here for reuse options!
