  • From Baltimore to the Army, a tale of marriage

    Apr 23, 2009

    Story was designed to be a "call to action" for disaster preparation by recounting the F5 tornado that hit this area 35 years ago this month. It is a two-part story that ends with the ice storm that crippled most of this state earlier this year. The interviews were with people who were affected by both events, how they handled them, and how they prepare. It includes information from Emergency Management Operations, and talks about "Ready Army."
