Saturday night’s Banquet Dinner Speaker was Bryan Norcross. Currently, Bryan is a Hurricane Specialist at WPLG in Miami, FL. This happens to be where he began his television career almost 40 years ago!
Really interesting to hear @bnorcross giving the evening keynote at #NESC2021.— Jack Sillin (@JackSillin) April 24, 2021
Right now, he’s addressing a question I think about a lot: when to start messaging a potential threat (hurricane/severe/winter)?
One great insight: probably don’t start on Sat/Sun (ppl pay less attn) pic.twitter.com/mi8EUMHvj9
