Meet Our New MIC!

By: Sonia Mark Flechtner


The National Weather Service in Caribou welcomes back a familiar face, Hendricus J. Lulofs, as our Meteorologist in Charge. Hendricus worked as our Warning Coordination Meteorologist from 1999 through April 2004 before being promoted as the WCM of WFO Blacksburg, Virginia. 


Hendricus, born in the Netherlands, immigrated to the United States when he was seven years old. He grew up in Rochester, New York, and later attended Lyndon State College in Vermont. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology and began work as a radio meteorologist in Portland, Maine, for a network of thirty radio stations in the US and Canada from 1986 to 1990. From 1990-91 he briefly worked as a TV meteorologist in Syracuse, New York, before beginning his career with the National Weather Service.


In 1992 Hendricus became a Meteorologist Intern at the NWS office in Portland, Maine and three years later earned a position as a General Forecaster at the same location. He later took a promotion as a Lead Forecaster in Marquette, Michigan from 1998-99, and soon became the WCM of our office in Caribou.


Hendricus is married to Ann, a native of Madawaska; they have two boys. In his spare time he enjoys golfing, fishing, and bird hunting. He is also a member of the local Caribou Rotary Club.


We are all very excited to have Hendricus back at our office and look forward to working with him again.
