The deadly storms that ripped through Oklahoma in May and killed nearly 50 people and injured dozens more were among the worst in recorded history, and were predicted a week in advance.
Our state’s unstable atmosphere makes it an ideal location to study erratic weather. Students and professionals come from all over the world to work in Norman at the National Weather Center; it is a unique environment where students can learn directly from the best forecasters in the world..
Scientists and engineers in Norman are developing and testing a new type of radar that promises to dramatically increase the warning time for people in the path of the storm.
OETA’s award winning documentary series Stateline looks into the creative mix of federal and state agencies and students that make up Norman’s “Storm Center.”
