Mike Prendergast Career
Prendergast works for CBS DFW/ KTVT in Dallas- Fort Worth as a Storm Chaser. He has been tracking the weather since 2011. Mike has been into weather since the eye of Hurricane Alicia moved over his house in south Houston in 1983. The fury and strength of the weather have captivated him ever since. He loves to experience the power of hurricanes firsthand; the sights, smells, and sounds of it all. There is nothing more exciting than witnessing a tornado over an open field up close and personal.
As much as he wants to see a tornado, Mike never wants to see it affecting people or property. That is why he and his wife are trained in first aid so they can help anyone in need. The two come across during a harsh weather event until the first responders can get there. They also want to be able to relay what data they can, during extreme weather events to the community through CBS 11 and the National Weather Service.
His most notable tornado was on the 15 of May 2013. Mike was sitting in Granbury when the initial storm began ramping up. He recall the storm taking a “right turn” as it was about to produce a tornado and going directly over him and the city. It didn’t put down a tornado at that juncture thankfully but did over Lake Granbury. The view of the backside of the storm was something he will never forget. When not tracking storms, Mike serves as the Program Director at 94.9 KLTY.
