Harry Volkman, RIP
Harry Volkmar passed away yesterday at the age of 89. He was one of the creators of television meteorology. In 1952, at WKY TV in Oklahoma City, he issued the first ever tornado warning. In more recent years, he was a well-known meteorologist in Chicago.
Harry was a genuinely nice guy as well as a talented meteorologist. He will be greatly missed.
