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!

My “Twisted” Obsession

I am sitting at home this afternoon streaming WBKR on my computer.  I just heard Dave Spencer chat with WEHT meteorologist Wayne Hart about this evening's MODERATE risk of severe weather.  We're expecting heavy rains, thunderous storms, dangerous lightning, powerful straight-line winds, and even possible tornadoes.  Normal people hear this kind of news and immediately start thinking about their safety plans.  The main question . . . if the sirens sound, where am I headed?  The basement?  The neighbor's cellar?  The interior-most room of the house?  But not me.  I know where I'll be headed.  I'm going to be outside right in the middle of the storm.
