Next up in our new series featuring video mini-segments from the podcast.  This segment comes from the September 2014 SW Climate Podcast - and covers the impacts of Norbert and Odile in the Southwest - as part of the 2014 Eastern Pacific Tropical Storm Season

Mike Crimmins and Zack Guido talk about the specific factors that fed into Norbert vs. Odile, as well as the differential impacts of these storms (in Sept 2014).
