'I escaped possible death,' how weather transformed this Canadian storm chaser

Tuesday, September 20th 2022, 1:45 pm - Candid Closeup is a weekly segment that features Canadians from coast to coast who love to share their weather. In this episode, The Weather Network's Kim MacDonald speaks to storm chaser, Brad Atchison, who talks about the trifecta of terror he experienced in 2021, documenting wildfires, floods and the record heat across British Columbia.

In 2021, when all eyes were on B.C. during the deadly heat wave, floods, and wildfires, Brad Atchison was experiencing it first-hand. He took his camera out and tried documenting it all as it unfolded.

There were some close calls along the way, and Brad counts himself lucky to have survived it.

In this episode of Candid Closeup, Atchison tells his harrowing story to Kim MacDonald.
