Prospects Loom For Warning Net Would Spot Tornadoes and Cost Would be Low WASHINGTON (IP) — The U. S. Weather Bureau said today it has radar tornado warning installations in 15 cities with prospects for a nationwide system. It has cost the taxpayer almost nothing extra so far and probably will cost next to nothing for a national network, said P. W. Reichelderfer, chief of the bureau. Relchclderfer's statement. In reply to a query, came after Capt. Howard P. Orville, former chief of the Navy's meteorological division, suggested just such a system Orville said the Weather Bureau should spend five million dollars over the next 10 years to install a 35-station radar network to warn against tornadoes. Effective On a television program from Baltimore Monday, Orville said his radar plan would be as effective as the hurricane system he helped or- canize in Florida, Reichelderfer was not so certain about how accurately radar might vary of approaching tornadoe.-,, but he said a bigger network than Orville suggested could be installed for much less than five million dollars. He said the Weather Bureau started five or six years ago using radar to scan the skies (or storms and tornadoes. He said it now has installations at Washington, 1J. C.; Wichita Palls, Brownsville, Victoria ind Corpus Christi, Tex.; Buvrwood, La.; Miami and Tampa, Fla.; Charleston, S. C., and New STork City. Reichelderfer said all the radar equipment is outdated Navy surplus converted for storm scanning by Weather Bureau electronics experts. The bureau has prospects of anoth- er j,00 Navy sets which would take two or more years to convert, he said. Less than one-tenth of ill UM known species at tnakei »r» poisonous.
