'Eyewitness to Spring Storms' - Saturday April 21, 2001 - 7 PM to 7:30 PM

Apr 10, 2001, 01:00 ET from ABC 7

    NEW YORK, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the toughest winter in five
 years, who isn't looking forward to spring?  But spring has its own serious
 weather concerns, ones that will be addressed in "Eyewitness to Spring
 Storms."
     On Saturday April 21 from 7-7:30 pm "Eyewitness to Spring Storms" will
 present its latest in a series of Weather Specials, this time examining the
 severe spring weather season.
     The "Eyewitness News" weather team of Sam Champion, Bill Evans and Lee
 Goldberg will take you to areas of our region that are prone to flash
 flooding.  Flooding causes more casualties annually in the United States than
 any other storm related phenomena.
     "Eyewitness to Spring Storms" will also offer valuable life saving
 information regarding thunderstorms and the danger posed by lightning.  It
 will also examine tornados, which do occur in our area more frequently than
 many believe.  About 25 to 30 tornados over the last three decades have been
 reported.
     "Eyewitness to Spring Storms" will break down the reasons why spring is so
 tough on many people's health.  Allergy suffers will learn why they are
 suffering and how better to prepare for the pollen onslaught.  Also, gardeners
 will learn how to keep their flowers blooming despite the volatile Spring
 Weather.
     This special broadcast will include experts from the National Weather
 Service, the National Lightning Safety Institute, Jamaica Hospital Medical
 Center, the City College of New York, the New York Botanical Garden and the
 office of The New Jersey State Climatologist.
     Immediately following the April 21st broadcast, Meteorologist Lee Goldberg
 will once again host a live chat at our website http://www.7online.com.
     "Eyewitness to Spring Storms," Saturday April 21, 7pm to 7:30pm on ABC 7.
