"I've never, in 26 years of forecasting, ever, seen anything like this," said Chad Myers, weather anchor and severe weather expert, while reporting on Superstorm Sandy.
Myers, along with CNN's Jason Carroll, Ed Lavandera, David Mattingly, Frederik Pleitgen, and John Zarrella, report for a new CNN documentary this weekend investigating the factors that made the impact of superstorm Sandy so devastating. The documentary also offers insights from researchers and scientists on climate change, potential solutions to limiting the impact of future storms on critical infrastructure like power grids, and the potential impact of reductions in the funding of satellite systems that aid meteorological storm predictions.
CNN Presents: The Coming Storms encores Saturday, Jan. 12 at 8:00pm and 11:00pm ET&PT on CNN/U.S.
In an exclusive interview with CNN's Pedro Pinto Friday, AC Milan star Kevin-Prince Boateng defends his decision to walk off the pitch after being racially abused during Thursday's friendly game with Pro Patria.
"I don't care if it's a friendly game, or the Serie A, or a Champions League game, if these things were to ever happen to me again I would walk off the pitch," says Boateng.
Boateng on his decision to walk off the pitch
"I'm 25 years old and I don't want to see this bullshit anymore. For myself no one could convince me to play anymore, I said straight I'm not going to go on this pitch anymore. They can't convince me to play in a crown or in a place like this. I made my mind up straight."
Boateng on his immediate reaction to racist abuse
"I was angry, I was sad, I was disappointed and this all came together and I just decided I'm not going to play anymore. I don't want to play in front of a crowd who are doing things like this or in a place like this."
Boateng on his advice to other players facing racist abuse
"I would say to everybody that if you feel you don't want to play, and if you feel you don't want to play in this moment anymore because it's not nice and to the point that they are angry, then definitely I would tell them to walk off the pitch."
Boateng on Clarence Seedorf , who said he should not have walked off the pitch:
"First of all I have to respect his opinion. But personally I think his opinion is wrong. Because I think every single person who does something like this deserves to see our attention to say you should go out, you should not be in this place. They should have 100% of our attention every single time. Because that is the only way we can keep them away from the sports. And I think just his opinion is wrong."
