Storm Chaser and meteorologist Joey Krastel proposes to his boyfriend, Chris Scott, in front of a tornado in Kansas. The image taken of this fantastic moment has gone viral on Tuesday, 28th of May, with over 10000 likes on Twitter. The caption of the picture is “The 2 loves of my life.”
Joey works as a risk analyst for the Maryland Emergency Management Agency, and his love and obsession for tornados as due to witness one at the age of four. So far, he has documented around 70 tornados.
Chris got in contact with Joey, because he had become fascinated for tornados and storm chaser since he saw the movie Twister back in 1996.
“That’s why it was always in the back of my mind to get engaged during storm chasing,” Joey told NBC News. “I felt like it would be this perfect way to seal the deal.”
The storm that served as background for their proposal occurred in Tipton, Kansas. A “tornado emergency” was emitted in several counties, although 15 people suffered injuries from the storm.
