Title: Webinar #52 - CoCoRaHS WxTalk: Climate of the South-Central United States: Hot Spot for Extreme Events
Date: Thursday, September 29, 2016
Time: 1:00 PM Eastern, Noon Central, 11:00 AM Mountain, 10:00 AM Pacific

This presentation will address the climate of the south-central United States, with particular emphasis on extreme events. The region gets way more than its fair share of extremes, including tornadoes, heavy rainfall, hurricanes and storm surge. Oklahoma has long been known as ground-zero for tornadoes, and our coastal zone has experienced some the most catastrophic hurricanes and surge events in the history of the western hemisphere. These extremes include the Galveston Hurricane of 1900, which is the still the deadliest natural disaster in U.S. history, and Hurricane Katrina, which is the most costly disaster in U.S. history. We will also focus on winter extremes as well, including ice storms and snowfall.
