Weather Channel to broadcast from Picher, Oklahoma

In addition to seeing how Picher is doing a year after the tornado devastation, Cantore would like to visit Mickey Mantle’s childhood home in nearby Commerce. The Connecticut native is a huge Yankees fan.

And there is one more stop he would like to make — that being the site of the Feb. 10 tornado.

"For the folks in Lone Grove, tell them my hearts are with them,” he said. "I am shocked that this year we’re getting April and May-type tornados in the middle of winter.

"I just hope we get a chance to go down there just to shake a few hands and hear their stories.”

Everyone is invited to share their "storm stories” online at Cantore said he may even incorporate some of the tales into "Storm Stories” this season.
