(WHO)  A new tool is helping Marshall County, Iowa officials raise awareness.

Storm chasing vehicle named “Dorothy” belonging to the Iowa Storm Chasing Network made a visit.

Officials say it’s modified to protect storm chasers.

They say it can take baseball sized hail all day without any damage.

It can also lower itself so wind can’t get under it and pick it up.
