It Only Takes One. Mayflower/Vilonia Tornado Presentation

I had the honor of presenting at the National Severe Storms and Doppler Radar Conference in Des Moines, Iowa on Friday March 27th.

Below are two videos.  The first is a recorded version of the same presentation I gave at the conference and the other is a condensed video of our television coverage that night last April 27th.  

The presentation goes over the set-up, the use of social media, how we cover severe weather at Channel 7, and how the event unfolded.

An excellent presentation, Todd.

I was watching this develop on GR3ver. 2 and was shocked at the rapid intensification of the storm/tornado. I do not believe I have ever seen a tornadic signature go from a hook to a major tornado in 2 radar scans until that day.

Please be proud of the job you and the team did that day. I know you saved a lot of lives.
