Major props to the Woodward News for their non-stop coverage of the tornado that ripped through their city overnight. The above footage was posted to their Facebook page within an hour and picked up by most of the local media, stunned by its images and probably by the speed it was posted as well.
Also the Woodward News (@woodwardnews) did an outstanding job of posting updates on its Twitter feed. It was a perfect example of how to use social media to inform and update its readers.
Storm season. We’ve all been through it. Every year in Oklahoma. This account linked below describes the recent Joplin tornado. Amazing, heroic and sad.
“That’s what I witnessed. That’s what I saw. I mean, people only know about a third of the story. It’s not about just chasing, it’s about helping and saving people. What I witnessed here in Joplin is unimaginable.”
I think we all were glued to the radar images Tuesday. Here’s a time lapse as the storms pushed through Oklahoma from 3 pm to 10 pm.
