"Mr Tornado," May 19

PBS is going to run a one hour "American Experience" titled Mr. Tornado -- the story of Dr. Ted Fujita. I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to it. The trailer is here.

Ted, who passed away in 1998, was a friend of mine -- and, the most brilliant scientific mind I've ever experienced. Working with him on downbursts, the Hesston Tornado, and his visits to WeatherData, Inc. were peak moments of my career.

PBS/WGBH called me early on in this project and I helped as I could. Thrilled my friend is getting this honor and I can't wait to see the final product.
