We look at the effects of the Polar Vortex in this episode of the Disaster Podcast. The recent spate of extreme cold weather to strike the midwest and northeast of the country had far-reaching effects across the country. Numerous deaths and injuries were reported during the multi-day weather event. Kyle Nelson and Becky DePodwin, our two disaster weather experts lead the discussion on extreme cold and how the weather affects many aspects of emergency response and community resilience.
On the show this week are co-hosts Sam Bradley and Jamie Davis and Dr. Joe Holley from Paragon Medical Education Group.
