Rescue names puppies born during storms after meteorologists

June 6, 2019

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — An animal rescue has named a litter of puppies born during an outbreak of severe weather after Kansas City TV meteorologists.

Midwest Animal Resq of Raytown says the puppies were born May 24, when tornado warnings were issued. One day earlier, storms injured about two dozen people in Missouri’s capital city and killed three others elsewhere in the state.

The animal rescue said in a Facebook post that, “We figured they needed to be named after some of the folks who helped keep KC safe that night! Welcome to the world weather pups.”

One of the puppies is named for KMBC-TV chief meteorologist Bryan Busby, while the mother was named for the station’s meteorologist, Katie Horner. The other puppies were named for meteorologists at other TV stations.
