Bangladesh and East India Tornado Prediction Site
by : Jonathan D. Finch

Jon Finch with Tornado in Roberts County, Texas in 1994
I grew up in Lawrenceville in rural southern Virginia. After receiving a Bachelors degree in Environmental Science from the University of Virginia in 1991, I earned a MS degree in Meteorology at the University of Oklahoma in 1997. Currently I am a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Dodge City, KS and enjoy all types of severe weather including the prediction of severe local storms, tornadoes and winter weather. My present research involves the development of a tornado climatology for east India and Bangladesh, and the documentation of the synoptic and mesoscale severe storm environment leading to tornados in this region.
