And earned his Seal of Approval from the American Meteorological Society in 2001, and is a member of the AMS and National Weather Association (NWA). During his career he has covered six hurricanes- Danny, Georges, Earl, Katrina, Wilma and Irma; two deadly tornado outbreaks: one on Valentine's Day 2000 & the other January 22, 2017; winter storms, and even a dust storm in the Central Valley of California.
