I am Chief Meteorologist Chris White. I became a credentialed Fire Weather Analyst in 2008. The week after I graduated I along with seven others were struck by lightning while fighting a wildfire in Caldwell County. I was out of work for six months due to that and started this little Facebook page called Burke Weather. From there we have expanded to serve 8 counties with our office in The McDowell County Emergency Operations Center. I am a Supervisor at Burke County 911 and have a passion to serve others. I am proud to work alongside such a talented group of weather forecasters, storm chasers, and meteorologists here at Foothills Action Network.
