As said above ^^, southern Niagara is pretty flat and also rural.

Northern Niagara (where I am) Is *TERRIBLE* for chasing. Hilly, lots of urban areas, congested roads.

Niagara in general is not good for chasing: you have Lake Ontario blocking you to the north, Lake Erie blocking you in the south, the Niagara River (and USA) blocking you to the east. If the storm is already *in* Niagara, then fine. But if you plan on actually chasing a moving storm, Niagara is probably the worst place a storm chaser wants to be.
