End of World Cup broadcast interrupted by tornado warning in New York (Video)
Thousands of viewers from southern New York and northern Pennsylvania were left wondering if Germany held onto their 1-0 lead over Argentina at the end of the World Cup on Saturday. With just over five minutes remaining, WENY in New York interrupted the broadcast of the match to issue a tornado and severe thunderstorm warning. The weather alert lasted the remainder of the game.
Imagine if Argentina had scored the equalizer and all those people missed it? I know a tornado warning is important, but isn’t that why we all have cell phones? I’ve had flash flood warnings wake me up in the middle of the night, so I’m sure a text can be sent for a tornado warning.
Deadspin rounded up a bunch of tweets from very angry people who missed the end of the match, and most of them contain four-letter words. Hey, at least they’re not dead.
