New Movie “The Impossible” Chronicles Deadly 2004 Tsunami [Video]

I remember waking up and hearing the news about 2004's deadly tsunami in the Far East.  It seemed that for months raw video footage of that event surfaced as did harrowing accounts of survival.  I vividly remember an episode of Oprah in which Oprah staff member Nate Berkus shared a voicemail he left for his mother shortly after the disaster struck.  Nate was there vacationing with his partner Fernando, who was swept away by the waves and never found.  Hundreds, thousands of similar stories surfaced and all were terrifying.  Now, a new film called The Impossible recounts that tragic day and focuses on one family's attempt to survive.  Take a look at the trailer.  This looks unbelievable!

Revisit Owensboro’s 2000 F-3 Tornado [Video]

I remember January 3rd, 2000 very well.  It was a holiday here at WBKR studios and I had worked for a couple of hours early that morning.  By that afternoon, it was sunny.  Our temperatures were hovering near 80 degrees and I was ready for a big afternoon nap.  That nap was cut short.  Cut short by blaring emergency alert sirens ringing through Owensboro-Daviess County.  I jumped out of bed and headed for the station.  I knew if a storm was going to hit, that's where I needed to be.  Boy, did it hit.  And Wayne Hart, like he is always, was in his studio with the play-by-play.  Check this out!

Footage of Christmas Day Water Spout on Lake Ponchartrain [Video]

Ya'll know I am huge fan of severe weather.  And I am particularly fascinated by it when it shows up in unexpected and extreme places.  34 separate tornadoes wreaked havoc in the Gulf on Christmas Day and lots of footage of those storms is surfacing online.  But, for me, some of the coolest footage from the holiday's weather breakout came from some folks who were crossing the never-ending Lake Ponchartrain Causeway.  That bridge seems daunting and eternal when you drive it in normal circumstances.  Just imagine trying to tackle it with THIS in the water!

Jaclyn’s Zany Weather Forecast Conjurs Memories of Marcia Yockey [Video]

 Earlier this week, Jaclyn stepped out from behind the radio mic and in front of a television camera.  She was a guest host on the Eyewitness News Lifestyles show.  Meteorologist David Heckard, clearly not in his right mind at the given moment, let Jaclyn give the old "green screen" a whirl and things went about as well as expected.  Jaclyn looked like one of Barker's Beauties on crack.  She pointed the wrong direction, proved to the world she never had a geography lesson and blocked the path of storm fronts trying to enter the tri-state.  Jac's weather forecast was hilarious and, as our buddy Mitch Edwards pointed out, was a bit reminiscent of a local weather legend . . . Marcia Yockey.  Marcia, like Jaclyn, was animated, unpredictable and a blast to watch.  Check out this awesome highlight reel . . .
