Talking about extreme weather

Hurricane season and extreme weather: a discussion on The Point. Hurricanes are reaching their peak intensity further away from the equator.  This raises concerns for more heavily populated areas away from the tropics. And a new report that says the Northeast is warming faster than any other region in the United States. Mindy Todd speaks with WCAI Science Editor Heather Goldstone, and Kevin Kloesel, Associate Dean for Public Service and Outreach in the College of Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences at the University of Oklahoma. He is also an Associate Professor in the OU School of Meteorology.
