As we get into the statistical heart of tornado season 2021, this is the only book on the topic of how the storm warning system came to be: Warnings: The True Story of How Science Tamed the Weather.
The warning system doesn’t just encompass tornado warnings,
- Did you know that downbursts were once the #1 cause of commercial airliner crashes? Because of one courageous meteorologist, the last U.S. downburst crash was in 1994.
- A single unwarned U.S. hurricane killed 8,000 people (which would be 13,000 today due to population increase). We’ve prevented that type of disaster.
- The evacuation ahead of Hurricane Katrina was one of the largest peacetime evacuations in U.S. history — and it saved 40,000+ lives.
With graduations, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day coming up, I hope you’ll consider picking up a copy.
