PHOTOS: Chief Meteorologist Mike Morgan honored for work during tornadoes

Our own Chief Meteorologist Mike Morgan was honored with the Lee Allen Smith Spirit of Oklahoma Award Thursday.

He was among those recognized for the tireless effort that goes into forecasting Oklahoma’s deadly weather.

Morgan wanted to honor the victims of those storms so he invited several folks who were hit hard by May’s tornado outbreak.

You might remember E.H. Pittman.

He was paralyzed when the tornado hit the 7 Eleven store where he was working in Moore.

He had just returned from Afghanistan after serving our country for a year.

Mike also invited Geary and Suzan Whaley.

The Whaley’s were on I-40 near Shawnee when the May 19 twister lifted their SUV and slammed it to the ground.

Geary was left in critical condition and we’ve been following his incredible recovery.

Congratulations to all those recognized and we are very proud of Mike Morgan and the 4 Warn Storm Team.
