Dan reflects on Cullman tornado (Ep. 361)

Dan Whittaker, is a storm chaser and panelist on the Carolina Weather Group. On April 27, 2011, Dan had left his home in North Carolina to chase what would become a historic tornado outbreak across Alabama and the South. In this bonus conversation with his fellow panelists, Dan recounts his storm chase through Cullman, Alabama, where he recorded video of an EF-4 tornado. That same tornado, with max winds of 175 mph, also traveled through Morgan and Marshall during its 47 mph journey on the ground. At its widest point, the tornado was a mile wide. Across Alabama, there were 62 tornadoes that killed 352 people. On this tenth anniversary of the historic tornado outbreak, the Carolina Weather Group also talked with James Spann. Spann, who is the chief meterologist of ABC 33/40 in Birmingham, Alabama, and the host of the weather podcast Weatherbrains, was on the air that day tracking the deadly storms across his state.
