At 0:34, you can see "the look" on his face. The look of "we are the story." I remember seeing that look a few times on Gary England's face in OK over the years. Where he started yelling at people to 'get down and go.'

The words "Tornado Emergency" are no joke.

This is the second time newscasters have had to evacuate on air within a year...

I can't remember the other station that had it happen, though?

I remember when my city got hit by a tornado. I was at work, saw the black wall across the western sky, and ran down to the basement.

Nobody else came down, they thought I was a sissy. They stayed in the shiatty frame main floor with the big glass windows.

Turns out the tornado passed through about 2 miles north of work.

Which was right in front of my house, like literally.

It was only an F1 but my neighbors' house had its roof ripped off. We had minor damage.

When I see a black wall across the sky I go underground and surround myself with concrete.

I haven't seen a lot of tornado action in my life, but that green sky is always frightening. It preceded the one tornado that almost hit us. I never did see it because it was a typical Southern Ontario tornado - F1 rain wrapped, but it was farking scary even at that since we were in the car with no shelter at all. My ex-husband had been driving fast to beat the storm home, but it was faster than he was, the doofus.

Considering KLTV is downtown Tyler, I thought my old turf was trashed. Shame on subs for using a local source far from the story.

Anyhow, KLTV doesn't evacuate, they move to the bank vault studio. Because they're in an old bank.

As a child, I lived in the TX panhandle. During one tornado, we were in the hall, under a mattress, listening to the local radio station. All of a sudden, the reporter says something to the effect of "it's coming right for me, so I'll be going off air. Good luck everyone". Problem was, we lived about two blocks from the radio station. The funny part was, the reporter wasn't in the studio, he was doing a remote. So the tornado was a couple of miles, rather than a couple of blocks from our house!

I have a vivid memory of being a little kid in Wichita and there being a tornado at like 4 am. We trundle on down to the basement and turn on Mike Smith (http://meteorologicalmusings.blogspot.com/). He comes on the air and he's still in his pajamas. That, more than anything, made me realize that tornadoes were serious business.
 One of the things I miss now that I live in the country is the exactitude of city tornado coverage. Yeah, it's somewhere in your county, good luck with that.

Had one go by the house back in 96'.  It rolled in from the west out of the blackest day time sky I've ever seen.

The dog ran into the basement before I knew what was happening, then the freight train noise started, getting louder with each second.

I was making my way to the top of the stairs when I heard the blast of our massive west facing living room picture window exploding out.

Heading downstairs and at the top of the stairs, I had to pull with all my might to close the door that separates the stairwell from the upper level,  due to the massive vacuum in the house caused by the passing tornado (normally that door can be swung shut easily with just a pinky finger).

Huddling in a foundation corner downstairs, the roar continued for about 5 more seconds and then went silent.

Opening the door to the upstairs I expected to be standing in the outdoors, but the house had survived.

A couple doors down was damaged beyond repair though and our street lost about a dozen century old trees.

/ tornadoes are farking freaky...

BTW my office has all glass windows. The only safe place to go, in case of tornado, is the 2 shower rooms and 2 washrooms. I can't wait til we try to fit 30 people into those.

This is no shiat. I'm aware of only four tornado emergencies ever issued by NWS. One was Greenberg KS. One was OKC in 99. One was Joplin. The other was Moore last year.

Does your weather radio receiver have S.A.M.E. capability? If so you shouldn't be bothered by alerts not targeted specifically for you.

They actually issue tornado emergencies pretty frequently now.  It pretty much requires a tornado known to be on the ground approaching a populated area, so it's a step up from a warning.

I wish you the best, Mrs. Brainsick's sister was hiding from the tornado in a closet with her dogs, even though her area was advised to use the shelters and she doesn't have a basement. (Facepalm, I know)
It missed her by 3 miles.
