Michael Grant Jaffe. Whirlwind. New York: Norton, 2004.

Lucas Proudy is a weatherman in the fictional coastal town of Bentleyville. His career is going nowhere, and his only romantic prospect — the bartender at a local strip club — shows no sign of returning his affections. Then Hurricane Isabel hits the state. Lucas’s beachfront coverage is shown nationwide and his apparent death is captured on film. But Lucas survives, emerging from a wrecked building several days later to find himself an instant celebrity.
