 The Extreme Weather Survival Manual (2015)
Extreme weather has the ability to leave us devastated, but with the easy-to-follow Extreme Weather Survival Manual you’ll be ready for anything Mother Nature throws at you. Dennis Mersereau and the editors of Outdoor Life magazine offer their life saving advice to help you survive blizzards, hurricanes, firestorms and much more.


Forbes — I currently contribute to the science section of Forbes' website, where I translate complicated weather forecasts and analyze important weather information for thousands of readers.

Gawker's The Vane — I ran Gawker's weather vertical for 21 months, helping hundreds of thousands of readers every month appreciate and prepare for the worst (and best) nature can throw at us.

Mental Floss — I contributed more than a hundred articles to Mental Floss between 2015 and 2017, helping the site's readers understand all sorts of weather events and prepare for dangerous storms on the horizon.

Capital Weather Gang — I occasionally contributed to the Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang between 2013 and 2015, covering everything from the Philippines' deadliest typhoon to conspiracy theories about weather control.

Popular Science — I covered the 2017 and 2018 hurricane seasons for Popular Science.

Outside — I began a weather column called Heavy Weather with Outside Magazine's website in September 2018.

Observer — I contributed five weather articles to in the spring of 2018.

Daily Kos — I began writing in earnest at Daily Kos, where I wrote hundreds of posts beginning in 2010. Most of my weather writing there consisted of "live blogs," in which I would alert readers of impending dangerous weather and keep them updated about what was happening as it happened.
