People of Weather-Ready Nation

WRN logoNOAA's Weather-Ready Nation is about building community resilience in the face of increasing vulnerability to extreme weather and water events. Through operational initiatives, NOAA's National Weather Service (NWS) is transforming its operations to help America respond.

NWS can't do it alone. Building a Weather-Ready Nation requires all of us to work together. The People of Weather-Ready Nation is an interview series that profiles the people responsible for building a Weather-Ready Nation.
