In Alabama, Gov. Robert Bentley called James Spann, the rock star of meteorology in the state, a hero for his role when an unprecedented string of tornadoes bore down there this spring and killed nearly 250 people.
Without the rapid warnings Mr. Spann sent out via Twitter, Internet streams and television, surely more lives would have been lost.
Agree 100%. I've watched James (via internet) during severe weather outbreaks and he is excellent.
Glenn and James are two of numerous outstanding meteorologists saving lives throughout the United States.
