Matt Hughes, star of the infamous Discovery Channel Storm Chasers show, died earlier this year in his Wichita, Kansas home. Revealed on the show, Hughes died on May 26, 2010. Though the Discovery Channel emphasized that his death was not the related to his storm chasing activities, the internet is heating up with reports of his death being ruled a suicide.

The death of Hughes was likely very traumatic for family and friends; Please remember that storm chasing is dangerous. No one should attempt to be a storm chaser without proper training and experience. Though Matt's death was not related to storm chasing, the romanticism of storm chasing may reach new heights now that the show aired. Do not chase tornadoes without experience and training.
