The Storm Report would like to welcome Harrison Sincavage to our social media team. Harrison is a freshman at Penn State University and is currently attending the Berks campus. He is from the small town of Wyomissing outside of Reading, PA.
I found Harrison in a rather unique way. I found him on twitter.
Here’s what happened: I received a tweet from Harrison when the coastal low was plaguing the Mid Atlantic coast back in October. He tweeted about buoy data and coastal conditions off the DE coast. It was a well thought out tweet with great information and I sent it out. I checked out his profile on Twitter and Facebook. Harrison impressed me immediately. By reading his previous tweets, you could tell he loves the weather and has a vast knowledge on the subject. And he is a freshman! Once I saw he is a Penn Stater, that sealed the deal to reach out to him since that is where I received my met degree! After chatting with Harrison, I knew this is someone who could really be an asset to the Storm Report. He is a well grounded, hard working, meteorologist to be.
I asked Harrison to tell me more about what got him into the world of weather. “My interest in weather has always been with me since I was a little kid. My most prominent memory of a major weather event at a young age was Hurricane Floyd back in September of 1999. I remember watching it be tracked on The Weather Channel and them saying that the flooding was going to be bad. It turns out, we had over 13 inches of rain in two days. Our basement flooded and our backyard was completely flooded due a storm drain that was connected to the local creek. It backed up because the flooding was so major and the water line reached our house. I remember standing downstairs in the basement with my dad and brother watching the water pour through one of our basement windows down onto the floor. That was the most amazing thing I have ever seen, and it has stuck with me ever since.”
I asked Harrison what he is excited about most about working for The Storm Report. “I am very excited to be with The Storm Report as I for one, will be able to help out in the warning process when dangerous weather occurs and potentially save lives. But I am also excited and fortunate enough to work with meteorologists who have spent decades in the field and be able to take what I learn in the classroom, and apply it to real life scenarios.”
