News 9 Storm Tracker Jeromy Carter first became fascinated with Oklahoma weather as a child watching lightning on the porch with his dad.

Jeromy's father owned a roofing company, so they kept a close eye on the weather. As Jeromy got older, his desire to see a tornado in-person grew.

"I chased intermittently for three years before I was able to see my first tornado in 1998," he said.

As time passed, Jeromy started planning chases and driving thousands of miles. Learning the nature of supercells enabled him to see many tornadoes over the last 23 years.

Jeromy has witnessed firsthand the most powerful forces of nature: Hurricane Ike on the Texas coast, the El Reno wedge tornado of 2013, the massive Dewey County fire of 2018, historic flooding and many other major weather events.

In 2013, Jeromy started working in Oklahoma City as a storm tracker and tracked all types of Oklahoma weather.

Jeromy was born in southwest Oklahoma City in 1976, raised in Oklahoma City and graduated Westmoore High School, class of '95. He has been married since 1995 to my wife, Ramie. They have raised five kids! Jeromy works in the construction industry. He is also a proud grandfather and native Oklahoman!
