GOES-16 image of Hurricane Florence, September 13, 2018.

As Hurricane Florence was headed towards the North Carolina coast last week, several universities in the Atlantic Coast Conference decided to cancel or reschedule football games. The hosts of the ACC Today show on SiriusXM radio’s ACC Channel invited our own Carl Schreck, an NC State alum and fan, to provide his perspective as an expert on tropical cyclones.

Although the segment was ostensibly focused on the impacts on regional sporting events, it turned into an insightful discussion about tropical storms, the risks they present, and the role of climate change in altering the behavior of storms. This is highly recommended listening for anyone interested in tropical storms and Hurricane Florence.

Thanks to Tony Scarangella and SiriusXM for providing the audio recording.
