*CG locator Salem
Avalanche vs Indians The game started at 10am and it
made for a perfect field trip day for
the local school kids.

The Avs, however, didn't seem too
alert for this one, in the fourth Mario
Matulich for Kinston hits one to left
center that goes all the way to the
wall and almost hits the Skytracker 7
billboard. 2 runs would come into
score to give the Indians the lead.

Salem looked like a team that wasn't
used to being up early. The Avs were
held to just 1 hit in the game. That
came in the 6th when Wade Robinson
would triple down the right field line.

He would score 2 batters latter on a
R-B-I ground out by Scott Robinson, to
make the score 2 to 1.

Kinston would put an end to the Avs
winning streak with a big 8th inning.
Matulich again driving one to *CG final Kinston left, Mike Floyd can't hang onto it as 6 he slams into the wall. Indians would Salem score 3 in the frame and go onto win 6 1 to 1.
Avalanche: 1 hit

bwatts@wdbj7.com You've seen us use our new TITAN radar
in recent months to track storms, but
we haven't told you what sets it apart.

The first station in the nation to use
it was SkyTracker 7 weather. Now
TITAN's taking the nation by storm with

its ground-breaking technology.

OQ=...and saving lives. < (END SOT) nothing new to southwest Virginia. What


is new is the way that we can warn you
about severe weather much sooner.

ROBIN: WHEN WE UPGRADED ALL OUR WEATHER
COMPUTERS THIS SPRING, WE DIDN'T WANT A
RADAR ANALYSIS SYSTEM BASED ON OLD
TECHNOLOGY, WE WANTED TO PURCHASE ONE
THAT IS NEWEST AND MOST ADVANCED.

That purchase is called TITAN.
It's not just a powerful name. It
stands for Thunderstorm Identification,
Tracking, and Nowcasting and it's
pushing the limits of technology.

Using National Weather Service

radar data, TITAN incorporates 4
Real-Time radars to provide the most
advanced look at approaching weather
long before it arrives in Southwest
Virginia.

BRENT STANDUP: TITAN USES
VOLUMETRIC RADAR TECHNOLOGY, WHICH
SIMPLY MEANS THAT EVERYTIME A SWEEP
GOES BY, A LAYER OF INFORMATION IS
UPDATED IN REAL-TIME ON YOUR SCREEN.
THE PROCESS CONTINUES THROUGHOUT EACH
LEVEL, PAINTING THE HIGHEST-QUALITY
THREE-DIMENSIONAL PICTURE OF DISRUPTIVE
WEATHER.

Timing and accuracy is crucial
when severe weather approaches. That's
why TITAN is equipped with early
warning storm markers which alert us of
storms containing hail, rotation, or
tornadoes. In addition, TITAN
indicates lightning data on your screen
in real-time.

LEO: THE GREAT THING ABOUT TITAN IS
THAT WE CAN PUT THE RADAR IN FORECAST
MODE TO SEE WHAT WILL HAPPEN 6,12 EVEN
24 HOURS.

This summer, TITAN will take
street-level forecasting to a new
level´┐Żwith high-resolution mapping.


ROBIN:WE'RE EXCITED BECAUSE THIS
SUMMER, IF THERE'S A STORM MOVING CLOSE
TO YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD, WE CAN ACTUALLY
TAKE YOU DOWN TO SHOW YOU WHERE THE
STORM IS IN RELATION TO YOUR
NEIGHBORHOOD.

What this means is the clearest,
most accurate look at severe weather,
saving property and saving lives.>>
