WICHITA, Kansas — KSN employees and meteorologists took shelter from the tornado Sunday while continuing to broadcast from a safe place.
KSNW meteorologist J.D. Rudd and Chief Meteorologist Dave Freeman broadcast that the signature on radar was headed straight towards the station and downtown Wichita.
Rudd and Freeman rushed out of the camera frame, telling viewers the station was evacuating and urging staffers to get to shelter.
Station employees scattered to the basement as warning sirens blared and the storm headed towards downtown.
Fortunately, the tornado lifted before it arrived in Wichita.
