Why did you choose Meterology?

The Weather Channel found me! When I was told that TWC was interested, I of course responded with great interest. When they said the job was in Chicago I became more interested, and when they told me I would be involved with almost every major weather event and be reporting nationwide for it, I grabbed the opportunity.

What would you like to know about Jorma Duran?

Q: What is your most memorable weather moment?

A: Thankfully I've been blessed with many memorable moments which include extremes of 123 degree heat and wind chills in the negative 30's. I've been in tornado outbreaks where I've dropped everything and ran for my life as a twister was on the ground and heading my way... and I've been involved with 7 hurricanes.

Q: What do you enjoy most about your job?

A: That I've been able to report from more than 250 cities and towns from 30 different states. The experience has allowed me to understand how different regions of our nation think, respond, and act.

Q: Have you ever seen or experienced a tornado?

A: Yes. Ironically the best experience I had with a tornado was when I wasn't working! We followed one and were less than a half mile away to an EF-3 for about 10 minutes as it cut through an area Southeast of Denver, Colorado. Because it was in the afternoon, I was able to see clearly a funnel that was spinning and eating up whatever it came across.

Q: What fascinates you most about the weather?

A: That no matter how much technology we have, our weather is still unpredictable.

A: The Shawshank Redemption, Natural Born Killers, Pulp Fiction, any Cheech & Chong movie, Flash Gordon, Goodfellas, Casino, the 40-Year Old Virgin, and Dumb & Dumber.
