LeBron James sends in a storm report
— NWS Miami (@NWSMiami) April 14, 2013
Given the severe weather that often hits the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area, the local NWS office relies on citizens for on-the-ground reporting. The organization trains people through its Skywarn program on how to recognize and report severe weather incidents. They also accept accounts from the general public.
There is no word on whether James might pursue storm chasing or meteorology once his NBA career ends. If former Heat star Shaquille O’Neal can become a reserve officer for the Miami Beach Police department, though, we’re guessing anything is possible.
