Meteorology students die in car crash after chasing tornadoes | USA TODAY
Nair, Short and Brooks were on Interstate 35 heading home from storm chasing when their SUV hydroplaned and then was hit by a semi-truck.
A tight-knit community of weather lovers and storm chasers is grieving after the deaths of three University of Oklahoma meteorology students in a car crash late Friday while returning to Norman from storm chasing in Kansas.
The loss of the students, Nicholas Nair, 20, of Denton, Texas; Gavin Short, 19, of Grayslake, Illinois; and Drake Brooks, 22, of Evansville, Indiana, prompted many to express their grief, but also to remember why they loved them.
