Three storm chasers died while tracking a tornado in Texas Tuesday, killed when their two vehicles collided at a rural intersection after traversing more than 100 miles in search of the risky gale, officials said.

The storm system already led to the traffic deaths of three storm chasers in West Texas and two brothers who touched a downed power line while playing in Fort Worth, Texas.

Forecasters said the storms could intensify Thursday as the system moves past the Mississippi River.

The storms did not cause any major delays in flights through Dallas and Houston, two of the nation's busiest air hubs, tracking service FlightAware.com reported. "Storm chasers are highly trained to know how to get out of the path of these storms quickly and safely". "People are under vast pressure to catch the shot and keep the storm in front of them and keep live streaming the storm".

Police say Weather Channel storm chasers Kelley Williamson and Randall Yarnall were also killed after Williamson ran through a stop sign and collided with Jaeger's Jeep.

For years, CNN and other national news networks have purchased tornado videos shot by freelance storm chasers.

The storm chasing community is rattled by the death of three of its members, and that loss is felt deeply here in Tulsa.

"Currently in Paduca, Texas doing a reassessment of today's chase plans". The timing could change with these storms and I'll provide an update in the late morning.

"It hit the community really hard". "I don't do livestreaming because it takes away from the creative work, but livestreaming has gotten very aggressive in the past couple years". "It can become risky for all involved", Gonzalez added.

"The biggest danger out there is the other chasers and the grandma that's trying to get her kids", he said.
