Ahead Of The Storm
Watch the CBS 11 Storm Team’s special “Ahead of the Storm” in its entirety.
2010 saw its share of severe weather events across North Texas. Among the most dangerous threats to human life and property are tornadoes.
Members of the CBS 11 Storm Team traveled to Lubbock Texas to visit with the professors and doctoral students at the world-renowned WISE program at Texas Tech University.
They are the people who drive towards the storm as many others seek shelter. We call them storm chasers. They’re the witnesses who sometimes find themselves in the middle of severe weather.
Lightning is brilliant, awe-inspiring and deadly. However, some people have survived a lightning strike.
“I just remember, like, a blue flash” said Terry Brisbin. He has no ill effects from the strike that happened in the late 1970’s.
When it comes to watches and warnings, there’s a big difference that North Texans should be aware of. Your safety is vital before, during and after the storm.
It was a storm that even long-time North Texans have rarely witnessed. The remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine moved from the Texas coast into the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Arlington received the brunt of the storm. As much as 10 inches of rain fell on September 8th of last year.
