The Story of How the Storm Warning System Came to Be

1 min read

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.
