Where Tornado Warnings Come From
Ever wonder how all this happens?
The death toll from once-frequent downburst-caused plane crashes has been cut 100% since 2004.
The death rate from tornadoes has been cut 97% since the 1930's.
These are astonishing, Nobel-worthy accomplishments. Warnings tells the story of how courageous meteorologists created the extremely effective, low-cost warning system we enjoy today. With storm season in full-force, now is a great time to read it or to give it as a Mother's Day or graduation gift.
