BALTIMORE - ABC2 News is working for you to keep you informed on what is happening with Hurricane Earl as the storm moves closer to Maryland. It's a great time to show you what it looks like, inside the newsroom, as we go through this planning.
It's all uncertainty, with weather, things can change at the drop of a hat. None the less we need to be prepared for the worst (and hope for the best) Since I was out of town for a few days we sat down Tuesday morning with Meteorologist Justin Berk as he took a deeper dive into the path of Earl and the impact it could have on Maryland's beaches, in particular Ocean City. It is a station plan. Other department leaders joined the meeting as we have to pull all resources to provide you the best coverage.
Then we meet again with Meteorologist Wyatt Everhart (both of which you can follow on Facebook) and brief the evening team on the plans we have in place so that there is no question or doubt as to what we are doing as a team.
It's the holiday weekend and we know many people from our area will be heading down the ocean for that last taste of summer. Our jobs are to make sure that you are well informed and travel safe. So we're sending crews to OC early so that you can see, on air and on line, what it looks like down there. But we also need support from you. Many folks are already down the ocean so if you see preps happening drop us a line, send us a picture (firstname.lastname@example.org) or upload it directly to our site.
As we started planning we took some video on these great new phones we have. Take a look at the discussions as we take you behind the scenes. I'll update this blog more in the coming days as our meetings will continue each and every day. We'll be looking at this storm in so many ways in an effort to give you the best coverage there is to offer.
