The highs and lows of chasing severe weather on the Prairies

Tuesday, May 11th 2021, 5:44 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 with Misheyla Iwasiuk, a storm chaser on the Prairies. Iwasiuk explains how she fell in love with photographing weather and her experience witnessing the deadly Virden, Man., tornado last summer.

When an outing on a quiet summer day turns to a massive swirling tornado, photographer and storm chaser, Misheyla Iwasiuk, unexpectedly finds herself in the “seemingly” perfect storm. In this episode of Candid Closeup, Misheyla recounts the harrowing tale of how she and her partner Aaron jumped into action amid the chaos, a mere 72 hours before the birth of their son.
