    NOAA researchers want to know your tornado stories [Ep. 419]

    NOAA researchers want to know your tornado stories [Ep. 419]

    Has a tornado hit your house or your community? Have you received a tornado alert? NOAA scientists want to hear your story. 

    The new Tornado Tales citizen science tool is an online survey that provides a way for people to anonymously report their tornado experiences. Developed by researchers at the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL), the tool will be used to better understand how people receive, interpret and respond to tornado information from NOAA.

    Our guest this week is project coordinator Justin Sharpe, research scientist with the Cooperative Institute for Severe and High-Impact Weather Research and Operations (CIWRO) working at the NOAA NSSL.

    Take the survey: https://apps.nssl.noaa.gov/tornado-tales/survey

    WBTV's Eric Thomas retiring: 1-on-1 exit interview [Encore]

    WBTV's Eric Thomas retiring: 1-on-1 exit interview [Encore]

    This week, an encore episode from the Carolina Weather Group archive.

    After 33 years forecasting the weather for Charlotte viewers of WBTV-TV, Chief Meteorologist Eric Thomas retired at the end of 2021.

    In a special sitdown interview with the Carolina Weather Group's Scotty Powell, Eric revisits his 3-decade career, including historic coverage of Hurricane Hugo, tornadoes, and other severe weather events. Eric also outlines the evolution of his career - from television into the age of streaming technology and social media.

    From our archive: Hurricane Hugo anniversary special: https://youtu.be/Qz6W0RCmjZ4

    Starting in 1988, Eric would oversee the creation and growth of Channel 3's functioning weather center as the Queen City's first degreed meteorologist on TV.

    As Eric explains, his degree and career track can be attributed to his father: Who encouraged him to seek the weather education ahead of a plan to go into the United States military and flight school. Eric, who had always dreamed of becoming a commercial airline pilot, studied the atmosphere and meteorology in college. A medical limitation that caused him to fail out of basic training, landed him into his storied career as a forecaster.

    Eric shares his own personal story of being given up for adoption and the loving family who took him in as their own. Eric has been paying that forward through local efforts in the Charlotte community to help families and children be united through adoption and fostering. Eric is also currently involved in the Carolina Radar project, a cooperative public-private initiative meant to help Charlotte solve its radar coverage issues.

    From our archive: The Carolina Radar Project: https://youtu.be/ySo45gwvIx8

    In this unique opportunity to sit down and talk at WBTV studios, the Carolina Weather Group's Scotty Powell explains how Eric mentored him into a life of weather. And stay tuned until the very end for surprise messages from Eric's fellow meteorologists - colleagues and competitors alike.

    The man who lives in a Carolina lighthouse [Encore]

    The man who lives in a Carolina lighthouse [Encore]

    Frying Pan Tower is located 32 miles off the coast of North Carolina and rises 135' above the Atlantic Ocean. It helps provide safety to Mariners in the Atlantic ocean, is used for environmental research and education studies, and is a shelter to a natural ecosystem for marine wildlife.

    Its location makes it a prime spot to observe tropical weather off the Carolina coast, including a direct hit by Hurricane Irene in 2011. Weather conditions are observed on-board by weather sensors and a live streaming webcam.

    In 2010, the government placed the Frying Pan Tower up for auction, with the winning bid going to Richard Neal of Charlotte, NC. Richard is our guest on this episode of the Carolina Weather Group. He joins us via video chat from the tower.

    The tower is powered using wind turbines and solar energy for electricity. It has a filtration system for potable water and high-speed Internet for communications. 

    You can learn more about the tower, and make a donation to its upkeeping, on https://fptower.org/.
