Our major spot news events during 2012 involved severe weather. This story aired March 20th following an isolated thunderstorm that materialized and badly damaged a mobile home in Baxter County. The storm occurred a half hour after our last major newscast of the day, but our weather crew was on the air during the storm updating the public on the storm's status. Immediately after the storm, reporter Richard Hester was able to interview a resident of the mobile home park and spoke with the county sheriff and personnel at the county 911 operations center who provided details of the incident for a story that aired the next morning on KTLO's 7 a.m. newscast.
