She also hosts an ABC News Live weekly segment focused on climate change and the environment called "It's Not Too Late," Ginger has covered almost every major weather event and dozens of historic storms for the past fifteen years—from Hurricane Katrina to Hurricane Sandy, Michael and Ida; from the Australian wildfires to the climate’s impact on Victoria Falls, Africa; and the aftermath of tornadoes all over the United States, most notably those in Moore and El Reno, Oklahoma. She’s covered blizzards in Boston and record-breaking heat in Death Valley. She not only shares her passion for meteorology but, more importantly, presents the compassion and human side of these storms.
