Hey, ABC News! Last Week’s Deadly Tornadoes Were NOT A “Surprise”

Three cheers to WBMA Birmingham, AL Meteorologist James Spann for taking on the big dog of ABC News last week and telling Diane Sawyer to “Get a clue,” after she reported that last Monday’s tornadoes came as a surprise. You can read Spann’s blog and see the ABC News report here. The severe weather outbreak was advertised by meteorologists well in advance — days in advance — of the actual storms, yet Diane Sawyer, anchor of ABC News’ ABC World News, declared the tornadoes “…took the South by surprise; no warning.”
