Everyone knows the pictures on TornadoAlleyLive.com are awesome: LIVE tornadoes, big hail stones, wild chases!
As good as the video is, it's even better when you can hear the chasers talk in their vehicles. So why do some chasers have sound, and some don't?
The bottom line: it's all up to the chasers.
Here at TornadoAlleyLive.com, we'll pass along the sound for any chaser that enables sound in his/her vehicle.
Some chasers do it. Some don't. Those who don't might cite one of these 2 reasons: 1) privacy - they don't want to have their conversations public, or 2) bandwidth - adding sound to their Internet live stream adds more data bits to the stream, which can slow down their video and data connections on an often-stressed wireless-data network.
One more bit of advice: we don't censor or pre-screen the chasers' video or audio streams, and there's no 7-second delay like you might find on a network television show. What you see and what you hear via the live streams on TornadoAlleyLive.com is what's happening in the chase vehicles right now.
