WeatherBrains 186: Camille Remembered

WeatherBrains Episode 186 is now online (August 17, 2009). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!


This week’s show focuses on the 40th anniversary of Hurricane Camille… our special guest is Jack Williams, author of the AMS Weather Book, the Ultimate Guide To America’s Weather. Jack and our regular panelists relive the Category 5 hurricane that brought so much destruction to the Mississippi Gulf Coast in August 1969. You also hear from some people who survived that incredible storm. J.B. Elliott reads some of the actual advisories issued by the National Hurricane Center.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Spann’s rant on TV news coverage of marginal tropical storms
  • J.B. has a sandwich named after him?
  • Where was Kevin last week?
  • and more!
  • Our mail bag has been getting some attention and Kevin puts it in perspective.
