Scribble Chat: Storms and natural disasters

A discussion around best practices when covering weather, storms and natural disasters in real time

by Miles Kenyon
From Haiyan to Katrina, it's hard to ignore: No longer requisite conversation filler, the weather has been making headlines as it becomes a bona fide media category in its own right. 

This week's Scribble Chat will investigate real-time reporting of weather, storms and natural disasters

What elements take your weather reporting above the fold? How do you gather information if it's unsafe to have reporters in the field? What do you do if your newsroom is under water?

To answer these questions, we'll be hearing from two journalists with first-hand experience in real-time weather reporting: Lauren Johnston from the New York Daily News and Jennifer Narramore from the Storm Report

The chat will take place Tuesday, December 3, 2012 at 12:00 pm EST.
