Greeks in the World: Storm Chaser & Adventurer

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)   George Kourounis, born in Hull, Quebec of Greek origin, is a reporter- though the word does not describe exactly what he does. Kourounis is a storm chaser and a renowned globaladventurer. He has been filming tornadoes, storms and all types of extreme natural phenomena for 11 years. In January 2005, after filming inside the smoking crater of the active Erta Ale volcano in Ethiopia, he became the first person to have ever filmed from the inside of 3 of world’s most fearsome forces – inside a tornado, the eye of a hurricane and inside an active volcano. His efforts have been seen around the world on the Discovery Channel, National Geographic Explorer, BBC-TV, CNN. Kourounis is also the host and co-creator of “Angry Planet”, a television series that focuses on his experiences with extreme weather and other natural phenomena, airing in over 35 countries worldwide.  Secretariat General of Information, Global Greeks: Media
