People recovering from damage caused by the tornado that rolled through Greater Houston back in January can now apply for low-interest loans through the U.S. Small Business Administration.

A member of each household must be a U.S. citizen to be eligible. You can find more information at readyharris.org or disasterloanassistance.sba.gov. And starting today, you can apply in person at the Disaster Loan Outreach Center at the John Phelps Courthouse Annex in Pasadena.

That January storm reminds us that severe weather can occur at any time and doesn't necessarily respect the calendar. Nevertheless, we're in the window now and over the next few months when tornadic activity here — and especially north of us — is more likely to occur.

That's also when Adam Kyle Jackson springs into action. He's a local storm chasing photographer and artist, and in the audio above, he tell us more about his work. When most of us are taking shelter from a storm, he’s trying to get closer to it.
