Russell Hande


Russell has been interested in weather every since he can remember.  In middle school, Russell met with WRGB Chief Meteorologist Steve Lapointe, for a class project. He was always interested in storms, recording his first thunderstorm in the summer of 1998 on an old VHS Camcorder. When a storm comes rolling in, Russell is already watching it on doppler radar, planning to record it, and about to head out into it. On May 21st, 2012, Russell completed the Basic Skywarn Training Course.

Finally, a storm worth recording! It has been a while, but here is a thunderstorm producing frequent lightning, drone view, 100-150ft.

The recording starts at approximately 7:05pm EDT, July 23rd 2020. The audio is recorded from the ground via the phone attached to the drone controller. The audio also has some cut-outs where I muted notifications and alerts coming in on my devices.
