Tornado Season

May 2, 2011

The spring season brings the threat of severe weather.  Last month, over half of the Monona County town of Mapleton was destroyed by a tornado.  In Alabama and Mississippi, tornadoes have killed more than 300.  We'll examine the emotional toll when severe weather hits with Parkersburg City Administrator Chris Luhring.  He'll discuss his community's recovery efforts after an EF5 twister leveled the town in 2008.  Also, a look at technological advances in tracking storms with Meteorologist Ken Padrazik with the National Weather Service.
