Description
"Gary A. England, Oklahoma's Emmy Award-winning weather forecaster, reveals a world not seen before - a world of humor, conflict, dedication, and riveting encounters with violent tornadoes. Beginning with his childhood interest in weather in a small Oklahoma town through a tour in the navy and on into the dynamic world of television broadcasting, Weathering the Storm shows how England's career developed and paralleled the almost incredible expansion of weather prediction and television news." "With severe weather an almost constant possibility, England must always be ready to interpret the radar, direct storm chasers in the field, and provide his viewers with severe weather warnings and safety instructions. He has focused on increasing public safety through a careful balance of sober predictions and personal charisma." "The book also provides brief, clear explanations and fifty-five spectacular color photographs of the remarkable weather phenomena that are part of everyday life in Oklahoma, including storm patterns, lightning, hail, and, of course, tornadoes."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
