And the Thunder Rolls.....
This isn't a night tv sales people like but wall-to-wall coverage was warranted. All stations in Little Rock went, and currently are in wall-to-wall coverage what seems to be a massive tornado is moving from just north of the Little Rock are to the northeast.
Meanwhile, in the ArkLaTex both Channel's 3..6...and 12 went into LIVE coverage when a tornado developed in the Mount Pleasant, Texas area. Once again I relied mainly on online coverage.
I found again KTAL/Channel 6 offered the best coverage online with Chief Met Todd Warren live on the web with radar describing what's happening and answering questions from online viewers. I switched over to KSLA's online coverage..once again found found the chief met providing what seemed a behind the scenes look. At one point it was quite amusing as he was wanting to go LIVE on TV to give a Tornado warning but couldn't find the cameraman, producer or anybody to put him on the air. The weekend met came back in and said they were all outside smoking.
Update: Been wqtching the Little Rock stations for the last few hours. On KARK I found it seem like the weather folks competing for time on the air. Of course I think they are simulcasting with KLRT and utilizing its weather mets also. KATV had all the weather crew in to help with coverage. Along with the mets it was showing storms reports of the devastation in NE Arkansas/the Mayflower area. KTHV had Ed Buckner and Sarah Fortner covering the storms. KTHV had the radar up on the screen the entire time tracking the storms.
I nearly forgot to mention The Weather Channel was tracking the storms as well. TWC had Jim Cantore in Norman, Oklahoma at the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center and he was communicating with tornado chasers chasing the storms moving across northeast Arkansas. Yea, you read correctly, The Weather Channel was covering weather!!
