Killer Weather Records

More from this show

The World Meteorological Organization recently announced world records for the highest reported historical death tolls from tropical cyclones, tornadoes, lightning and hailstorms. It’s the first time the official WMO Archive of Weather and Climate Extremes has included specific events, like a cyclone that killed 300,000 people. Randy Cerveny, an Arizona State University professor of geographical science and urban planning and chief Rapporteur of Climate and Weather Extremes for WMO and keeper of the world’s weather extremes, will tell us more about this fascinating topic.
