Storm Chasers Honor ‘Twister’ Star Bill Paxton With GPS Coordinates That Spell Out His Initials

Upon learning of the tragically unexpected death of beloved actor and director Bill Paxton on Sunday, February 26, 2017, a group of storm chasers sought to honor the memory of the Twister star by plotting GPS coordinates with Spotter Network markers so that they would spell out his initials right through the middle of the tornado alley states of Kansas and Oklahoma. This beautiful tribute captured the attention of meteorologists and “storm nerds” across the country.

RIP Bill. The world is a bit emptier without you.
