HOUSTON (AP) - Neil Frank is closing the book on his second
career in meteorology.
The former director of the National Hurricane Center is retiring
after 20 years as chief meteorologist at Houston television station
KHOU. Frank announced his retirement during the station's 10 p.m.
KHOU reports on its Web site that Frank will continue to provide
the station with special weather projects and hurricane coverage.
Frank joined the station in June 1987 after 26 years with the
National Weather Service's hurricane center in Coral Gables, Fla.
The final 13 years at the hurricane center were as its director, in
which the crewcut Frank became a familiar television figure during
whenever hurricanes approached the U.S. coast.
