An avid storm hunter has presented his boyfriend in the most appropriate way – for a swirling tornado in Kansas.
Joey Krastel, a meteorologist and risk analyst for the Maryland Emergency Management Agency, threw the question to his friend Chris Scott, 23, in an exciting proposal on Tuesday.
The 27-year-old shared a sweet snap himself who bent on one knee and introduced Scott with the caption: & # 39; The two loves of my life & # 39; they run towards them like a giant tornado in Tipton.
Krastel said that he, Scott, and two friends started catching a tornado in Kansas on Tuesday after the National Weather Service issued a & # 39; tornado emergency & # 39; for various provinces in the United States.
Storm chaser and meteorologist Joey Krastel, 27, introduced his friend Chris Scott, 23, for a swirling tornado in Tipton, Kansas. He subtitles a photo of the sweet proposal & # 39; The two loves of my life & # 39;
& # 39; I was just so emotional just because it was my happiest place to be next to him in the storms, & # 39; said Krastel (left) at the special moment
They started their hunt in Salina, Kansas and found the cruel storm in Tipton, where Krastel made his proposal.
& # 39; It all just came together and happened so quickly & # 39 ;, Krastel said NBC. & # 39; I thought "OK, this is it." & # 39;
The photo has since collected more than 8,000 likes on Twitter.
Krastel said while the tornado appears to be in the picture at a safe distance, but came dangerously close to the group during the proposal.
& # 39; I called my friends to get back in the car & # 39 ;, said Krastel. & # 39; I was just so emotional just because it was my happiest place, next to him with the storms. & # 39;
Both Krastel (left) and Scott (right) are storm enthusiasts who often chase twisters together
The two met on Instagram, where Scott Krasten once sent a message asking if he really was chasing tornadoes.
No fatalities were reported from the most recent tornado in Kansas, but at least 15 people suffered storm-related injuries, according to the Douglas County Office of Emergency Management.
Storm hunting was a binding factor for the couple.
Krastel said he saw his first tornado when he was four and soon became obsessed with natural disasters and pursued a career in studying them.
& # 39; It was then that I knew everything I wanted to do from then on. Every meteorologist has a weather forecast from when they were little that determined their path, & Kra 39 said.
So far he says he has chased 70 storms in his dangerous career.
Scott & # 39; s obsession with storms began watching the Twister movie in 1996 as a child with his father.
The two met on Instagram, where Krastel shares photos of the storm he sees. One day Scott shot him a message asking if he was actually chasing tornadoes.
& # 39; That's why it was always in the back of my mind to be engaged while chasing storms, & # 39; said Krastel. & # 39; I felt it would be this perfect way to close the deal. & # 39;
