Okay, I don't know if I needed two hours of tornado coverage but I would have liked to hear Anderson talk to Reed and Sean.

This was indeed breaking news, live coverage of the tornadoes as they happen. Very important for people living in the area and dramatic coverage for people who are fascinated by tornadoes. I started channel-surfing after 20 minutes.
