Galveston Tornado
August 31, 2009


Around 9:30 Sunday night, a water spout made landfall in Galveston along the seawall.  It is extremely rare for this to happen.  Once a water spout makes land, it ceases being a water spout and becomes a tornado.

This is the most fun I’ve had on a promotional shoot.  We were given a topic and told to talk.  Our topic was vacations and believe me when I say this is how most of my conversations go with traffic reporter Jennifer Reyna.
