Publish a Chase Log

A Chase Log is a Story that has been tagged to an actual chase. This is a great way to document and showcase your chase career to the Highways & Hailstones community.

Your Chase Logs will show on the Highways & Hailstones homepage and create your very own personal Chase Map on your Chaser Website homepage.

Currently, Highways & Hailstones support Tornado, Lightning and Structure Chase Logs.
