Where Was Delkus? 1

The evidence against WFAA continues to mount today.  I wrote about this last night in Part 1.  Recap – Instead of breaking from Dancing With The Stars during a local weather emergency, Channel 8 decided to only show weather updates during commercials.  This is the same WFAA that regularly breaks into programming for hours at a time.  Break in to programming or don’t, but be consistent.  The entire WFAA team should be ashamed today.

You owe your viewers an apology.

Here’s what you missed while showing Dancing With The Stars.

The Fort-Worth Star Telegram – North Texans assess damage after biggest storms in years

At least one tornado was spotted in Denton, and 70 mph wind gusts were recorded in the Loop 820 and U.S. 377 area, while Arlington spotters reported wind gusts of up to 75 mph.

Penny- to softball-size hailstones rained down on Tarrant County from east of Eagle Mountain Lake to the Bedford area, the weather service reported.

No injuries have been reported in Tarrant County, but The Dallas Morning News reported this morning that a man had been found dead next to a pile of debris at an Oak Cliff apartment complex.

There was extensive damage to residences in Saginaw, and roof shingles and trees were reported blown down at an apartment complex five miles north of Lake Worth, according to a weather service employee.

From WFAA.com themselves:DENTON – Homeowners in Denton say they watched a twister tear through their neighborhood. 

While there were no injuries there, more than a dozen homes have significant damage.

Winds stripped the siding from a dozen houses on the southwest side of Denton. Flying trampoline parts plugged into roof tops, stray debris punched holes in garage doors and fence pickets became projectiles, shattering windows and tearing into homes.

Denton Fire and Rescue patrolled the streets assessing the damage and helping homeowners. Emergency management said a small rope tornado touched down.

There are tons more examples of power outages, softball sized hail, and damage to homes and businesses.
But there was no Delkus.  No WFAA.  No news.  Nothing but DWTS.
