More than a Weather Man

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

In some parts of the country, the meteorologist on the local news is more than just a weatherman. He’s a life-saver, a legend, a guardian.

Few meteorologists fit that profile more than News 9’s Michael Armstrong.  He started his career in 1999 covering that year’s historic tornado outbreak in Oklahoma City shortly after joining the station.  Since then, he’s covered tornado outbreaks in 2008 and 2011 winning a Heartland Emmy and the National Edward R. Murrow Award for his work.

Armstrong grew up in "tornado alley" and remembers watching the region brace itself for tornadoes as a child.
