Lisa Bucci named NOAA Team Member of the Month

Lisa Bucci was honored this month for her courageous work last year during Hurricane Irma. Hurricane Irma was an extremely powerful and catastrophic hurricane -- the most intense storm to strike the U.S. coastline since Hurricane Katrina in 2005. On the morning of September 7, 2017, the NOAA National Hurricane Center (NHC) issued hurricane watches … Continue reading Lisa Bucci named NOAA Team Member of the Month
