I feel that weather prediction centers are a highly intelligent decision to improve the safety of citizens. This article illustrates the first one of it kind in America, Center for Weather and Climate Prediction, on University of Maryland’s campus. It has 800 employees that work to predict hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes etc. but as well, they study weather and its patterns. These centers need to appear in most major cities to help keep the citizens safe from torrential weather. It is also interesting how they not only plan to predict weather to warn people, but to study the weather in order to learn more about it. Phoenix needs one of these.
