Storm Chaser – Jimmy Deguara

Jimmy Deguara with storm in the back ground Jimmy Deguara is a mathematics teacher. His interest in weather goes back for as long as he remembers. It was the influence of floods and runoff associated with heavy rain which first intrigued him, and the challenge in forecasting led to his interest in thunderstorms, particularly heavy rain and hail. During 1989, a talk by Chuck Doswell on tornadoes enhanced Jimmy's dream of chasing after a tornado. There have been a few tornadic encounters in Australia including a storm that has to be one of the favourites with an Beaver tail Coffs Harbour at Coffs Harbour. But it was the US trip and associated tornadoes that became the highlight of his career and dream come true! US chasing will now be an important part of his chasing calendar. And just to add to the excitement, Jimmy intercepted at close range a strong Australian tornado in northeastern NSW at the township of Dunoon. Check out the
