Wade Bell recently received the "Super Spotter" award for his diligence in reporting severe weather to the National Weather Service in Louisville. Wade is a loyal weather spotter who consistently reports damaging winds, hail, flooding, snow, and ice from home, work, and even on vacation! Forecasters at the Louisville NWS office know they can count on Wade to provide accurate reports no matter what the weather hazard. Wade's tornado reports were critical in verifying a deadly tornado was on the ground during the Mar 2nd, 2012 Tornado Outbreak. For Wade's hard work and dedication, Joe Sullivan (NWS Louisville Warning Coordination Meteorologist) presented Wade with the "Super Spotter" award while Wade was at the NWS office receiving social media spotter liaison training recently.
