“A Failure To Communicate” by James Spann


“We must rethink our use of maps, the way we write forecasts and discussions, and the overall techniques of communicating weather. I don’t have the answers now, but I know we must change.

Add to the mix the problem of local and national media outlets coming up with their own watches, warnings, and severe weather indices, and this whole thing could really go down the tubes in a hurry. We can’t even agree on “call to action” statements during tornado warnings. One TV person says “you must be underground” to survive, another one says “drive south”, and another one says “get into a small room on the lowest floor of your home”.”
