Storm Chasers Honored Bill Paxton With Unique Tribute


Nearly 200 storm chasers are paying tribute to the Bill Paxton by spelling out his initials using GPS coordinates on a map depicting the heart of Tornado Alley.

Spotter Network spelled out "BP" to honor Paxton’s role from "Twister," which inspired a generation of storm chasers.

John Wetter, the nonprofit's president, says storm chasers have spelled out the initials of fellow chasers a couple of time before but never a non-chaser.

Most people participating did not travel, but they instead entered GPS coordinates manually to spell the letters on a map centered around Wakita, Oklahoma.
