WRAL Expands 2008 StormTrack Special to Help Inform Viewers
No major storms have hit the North Carolina coast yet this hurricane season, but WRAL-TV wants you to be ready. This year WRAL’s annual hurricane preparedness special is expanding to one-hour. StormTrack 2008 airs on WRAL-TV at 7:00pm on Thursday, July 31st.
WRAL-TV Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel will share some of his most unique tools in the WeatherCenter to predict the path and impact of a storm. He even goes INSIDE a hurricane to illustrate wind force and storm surge.
The most important focus of the special is “turn around, don’t drown.” Flooding is the number one killer during a major storm. WRAL seeks to remind our viewers who’ve lived through a hurricane just what a storm can do and enlighten our new residents about those dangers.
As a new feature this year, WRAL will count down the top 5 most destructive hurricanes in North Carolina history. Viewers can go on WRAL.com to vote for their pick and then see if it makes the list during the special.
WRAL-TV News Producer Martha Woodward has put the special together, and Fishel & WRAL-TV Anchor/Reporter Bill Leslie host.
From protecting your home to surviving the storm, WRAL wants you to be ready.
