Episode 61

2018’s hurricane season thrust itself upon the history books, starting on Memorial Day weekend with subtropical storm Alberto making landfall, then Hurricane Florence scraping North Carolina with flooding rains in September, and finally Category 5 hurricane Michael destroying homes and lives along the Florida panhandle in October. With all of these storms, meteorologists and emergency managers had to CONSTANTLY work together to refine their communication to keep everyone in the storm’s path safe. Today, I have two of those people who are at the top of their game: Dr. Rick Knabb, previous NHC director and current hurricane expert at The Weather Channel, and Rebecca Moulton, Natural Hazards Planning & Disaster Response Meteorologist for FEMA. Today we will be looking back at how we ALL did in 2018 and what we can improve going into the new hurricane season.
