North Texas has been making a lot of appearances on the Weather Channel lately during the dayparts when the channel covers real-time weather. But on Monday, June 1, one of the cable channel’s series, Tornado Alley, will look at a couple of survival stories from Noirth Texas storms of the recent past..
The Weather Channel’s highest-rated series, Tornado Alley “provides uncharted access to all things tornado” — including stories from survivors whose access to all things tornado has come much too close.
Monday’s episode includes two North Texas stores. In one, Granbury’s Christy Green and her sons take shelter in their house during a tornado, but find that escaping isn’t all that easy. (From the Weather Channel description: “When Christy woke up, she found her legs had literally drilled down into the dirt - up to her knees.”)
Here’s an excerpt from a re-creation, with comments from Green herself.
In another segment, Sheri Enoch, a daycare owner from Arlington, recalls taking cover in a tub with her grandson and two of the children she watched — everyone survives, but not before some extremely scary moments for Enoch that go beyond the tornado.
The episode airs at 8 p.m. Monday on the Weather Channel. Here’s a series trailer:
