Danny Neal was born and raised in Evergreen Park, Illinois. His path through weather stems from fear that grew into love and appreciation for all things weather. To date he has documented approximately 120 tornadoes and had the opportunity to volunteer at the local National Weather Service during some of northern Illinois' most violent weather in the recent past. Danny spends his time forecasting, educating, and training others to prepare themselves and their families from the impacts of severe weather. His name has become synonymous with many households across the state of Illinois, and he hopes to continue to build Illinois Storm Chasers into being the most reliable resource for inclement weather across our state.
