New Chief at Hurricane Center

Ed Rappaport appointed acting director of the National Hurricane Center. It will be a popular choice within the walls of the center. Rappaport is a scientist, a forecaster and was Max Mayfield’s deputy for sometime. He will be the on-camera presence during hurricanes. He is low key, matter of fact, and will undoubtedly keep the Center out of the headlines. A federal assessment team was in the center when the announcement was made. Bill Proenza, the former chief, will continue to work for NOAA but as of now is unassigned.
