Severe Mid-Atlantic Weather and Hawaii Wildfires

Westminster-storm-damageA line of storms with high-winds and severe weather warnings struck sections of the mid-Atlantic states earlier this week. One of the places struck with some remarkable damage was the home town of host Jamie Davis. Straight line winds of hurricane strength toppled more than a quarter mile of wooden power line poles along a major roadway in Westminster, Maryland.

Our meteorologists Dan DePodwin and Kyle Nelson join us to share their takes on the spate of severe weather. The storms were well reported and warnings went out ahead of them in areas that were struck. The system worked and deaths and severe injuries were thankfully avoided.

Dr. Joe Holley was also on the show and shared that he might be deployed with FEMA USAR teams and cadaver dogs to help with the search of the areas of Hawaii struck by wildfires. At the time of recording, 55 people were confirmed dead with up to 100 more still missing after the blaze.

This episode is hosted by Jamie Davis and Sam Bradley.
