Tornadoes Of March 28, 2000: I’ve just completed and published for the NBC station in Dallas-Fort Worth a special section that looks back at tornadoes that hit downtown Fort Worth, southeast Arlington and southwest Grand Prairie on March 28, 2000. It includes 400 images, original stories and video footage from 2000, a quiz, plus interactive features. I’ve also written a short piece about my experience working at the TV station that night.
