Lead Hurricane Forecaster Chris Hebert was interviewed by KUHF 88.7 Houston Public Radio yesterday. Hear what he had to say about the 2010 season. We’ll also be posting a season recap video week after next.

One of NOAA’s (National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration) missions is penetrating hurricanes from their base in Florida. They use jet aircraft for high-altitude research and turbo-props […]
