New Season Kicks Off Tornado Week; TWC Asks Viewers to Submit Stories to be Featured in a Upcoming Storm Stories Episode
ATLANTA (February 10, 2009) - Storm Stories, the series that chronicles the true stories of survivors and rescuers battling amazing weather events, returns to The Weather Channel Feb. 22 at 8 p.m. ET. The first episode, which kicks off Tornado Week, will feature the tornado that struck Windsor, CO, in 2008. To mark the debut of the new season, The Weather Channel is giving viewers an opportunity to become part of the series by sharing their own "storm stories" online at www.weather.com/tv beginning Feb. 19th. The new Storm Stories season will consist of 26 original episodes, with the first five premiering during Tornado Week from Feb. 22-March 1.
The Feb. 22 premiere episode features the May 2008 "Windsor Tornado" that touched down in northern Colorado, destroying much in its path, threatening a campground and a news crew, and ultimately hitting a daycare center. The Weather Channel will premiere four additional new Storm Stories episodes each night during Tornado Week at 8 p.m. ET from Feb. 22-26, including:
Monday - the "Parkersburg, IA, Tornado" on May 25, 2008, killed seven people and demolished the southern half of the town; first-hand accounts are given by residents.
Tuesday - the "Greensburg, KS, Tornado" on May 4, 2007, wiped out the entire town. The story is told through the experiences of next-door neighbors who saved a mother and her baby from the rubble.
Wednesday - "Super Tuesday" tornadoes cut a swath over a wide area Feb. 5, 2008; touching stories come from people that were affected in Arkansas, Kentucky and Tennessee.
Thursday - the "Boy Scouts Tornado" hit the Little Sioux Scout Ranch in western Iowa last June, catching everyone off guard. The surviving scouts are forced to put their training to use in the midst of a terrifying situation to help keep injured scouts alive in the aftermath.
