Tornado forces Mississippi anchor to flee on air

Tornadoes are dangerous storms.

If that isn't one of the most obvious statements of all time, this video will make it come to life.

A reporter at WTVA-TV in Tupelo, Miss. was covering a massive tornado that was bearing down on, and later hit, a shopping mall.

Almost everyone else at the station was in a storm bunker, but he chose to remain on as long as he could. Towards the end of the video, the signal begins to cut off and the reporter is seen directing all remaining staff to the bunker.

Then the video cuts out.

Once the show is over, Pamela gets out of the studio and gets into the newsroom where she is also the Managing Editor of the KTAR News Department.

When she isn't behind a microphone or chasing the big story of the day, you'll find Pamela at home with her husband Kris, daughter Riley and her crazy Chocolate Lab named Chewie. Her professional and personal life keep her quite busy but when she manages to find a few free moments she likes to spend them in her garden, working out, trying new recipes and discovering new restaurants.
