Jordan comes to us from the Pacific Northwest where he took on the challenge of micro-casting major snow storms, floods, Pacific coastal wind storms and even the Tsunami from 2011. Jordan was actually praised by the mayor of Florence, Ore. for helping divert the public from the coastal communities to shelters before the wave hit Oregon. After just one year in Oregon, he was awarded the Best Weathercast category by the Associated Press. Although he loved what Oregon had to offer, he knew he needed to dive into some severe weather. That's what Texas is all about, right? You can catch Jordan Steele every Saturday and Sunday on our weekend newscasts right here at KEYE TV.
