WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Storm chasers and meteorologists from across the country will be gathering next year in Wichita for a convention some see as an opportunity to gain recognition for the city as a destination for the growing storm tourism trend.
The Wichita Eagle reported the National Storm Chaser Convention will be Feb. 8-10. This will be its first time in Wichita.
Former AccuWeather executive and keynote speaker Mike Smith helped convince organizers that Wichita would be an ideal place for it.
