Presentation by Ken Dewey
After years of chasing storms, the storms finally caught Ken Dewey, WDØBIV, and trashed his home and neighborhood on the afternoon of May 9, 2016. Come to the next club meeting at LI-COR on March 8. Ken will give us his first-hand account, with photos and videos, of Lincoln’s worst hailstorm on record and Lincoln’s first tornado since 1957.
Oh, and he might just give us an outlook of what to expect this coming storm season in our area.
