If the cuckoo don't crow

If the cuckoo don't crow

(1:50) Strange but true and funny weather story. On October 15, 1987, a woman phoned the BBC to say she "heard a hurricane was on the way". BBC weatherman Michael Fish mentioned the call in his forecast and assured viewers it wasn't the case. The rest is history. One of the worst storms in 300 years hit southeastern England and northern France that night. It became known as the Great Storm of 1987.
