MPR/KARE11 Tornado project hits the air Browse by category Climate Cast About the blogger Michael Olson firstname.lastname@example.org • @publicmic Editor, Minnesota Public Radio News John Engebreth Hi Paul, I enjoy your twitter feed, thanksyou for that. Question I have today relates to severe weather tv warnings. Since so many folks have cable TV now, the likleyhood of them watching one of the public/free channels is less than it was 20 or 30 years ago. (Meaning, the the less likley they are to see a warning or radar flashing across thier TV) Is there anything in the works to get warnings delivered regionally on cable stations in addition to public access? I believe this would increase storm preparedness and ultimetly decrease fatalities/injuries/folks who “didnt know a storm was coming.” Thanks!
