Strike While The Iron Is Wet

It seems unlikely that one of your reporters and a photographer will be caught on a flooded highway…..and told that their television station is being evacuated…..and have to carry the coverage solo for close to an hour…..in the middle of a once in a lifetime weather event.

This is the moment right after Brandi Smith and Mario Sandoval found themselves in that exact position. They did a fantastic job.

After more than 30 minutes of solo coverage it began to rain even harder and there was the slightest tone shift in Brandi’s delivery for just a moment that said, “Really? More? There is more?” I had been watching radar and knew it was coming.

Take this moment to visit with news management and make sure everyone in the newsroom has RadarScope on their phone. More importantly, teach them how to use it.

  1. it can be radarscope, storm radar, or pykl3. any one of them will do the job well on the fly. but yes, I would also endorse radarscope if they’re willing to spend the 10 bucks on it.
