I’m Craig Setzer, Chief Meteorologist for CBS station WFOR-TV in Miami. I’m an expert in severe weather, especially hurricanes, and today is the first day of the 2017 hurricane season. AMA!
Thanks for participating in my AMA!!! June 1st is a big day down here as it marks the beginning of Hurricane Season. Though the season typically doesn’t peak until August to October, it’s best to start preparing now, especially if you’ve got plans to travel to impacted areas. In addition to working in South Florida for the past 17 years, I served as an instructor at the National Hurricane Center’s International Hurricane Workshops, and I even used to be an avid tornado chaser. Ask me all your questions about hurricanes and severe weather!
