UNDATED (AP) — Nearly 200 storm spotters and storm chasers around the U.S. worked together to create an online tribute to "Twister" star Bill Paxton, who died at 61 after complications from surgery.

The chasers posted GPS coordinates on a map of Tornado Alley using a nonprofit called Spotter Network to spell out Paxton's initials of "BP."

The final effort tore up social media Sunday in a testament to how the 1996 disaster movie inspired so many meteorologists.
