Eyewitness To History: Hurricane Season 2004 DVD Pack

hurrricane.bmp The 2004 hurricane season is one that no Central Floridian will ever forget. We were hit by three storms that did massive damage and left us with an even greater understanding of the power of hurricanes.

The eyes of the nation were on Central Florida during the historic hurricane season of 2004, and no other station in Florida covered Hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne quite like Channel 9 Eyewitness News. From the precise storm tracking of Chief Meteorologist Tom Terry to the incredible stories of courage of Central Florida’s residents told by Channel 9’s award winning journalists, WFTV was prepared for the storm season of 2004 like no one else.

“This marks the first time in history that Florida has been hit by four storms and due to power and cable outages many Central Florida residents never had a chance to see television coverage as the storms blew through,” commented Channel 9 Chief Meteorologist Tom Terry. “So many amazing stories of courage and survival came out of the summer of 2004, we just felt that we had to offer this DVD collection to give the people of Central Florida a permanent record that they can hold on to.” Now that the storms have passed and hurricane season is finally over, Channel 9 is proud to present the definitive DVD collection on this year’s storms.

This groundbreaking project includes highlights from Channel 9 Eyewitness News’ coverage of the each of the storms. The DVDs will include stories of heroes and hope that emerged after each storm passed, and will go County by County to show how each area was effected. Special features of the DVD will include behind the scenes interviews with the meteorologists, anchors, reporters and photographers who worked non-stop to make sure viewers were prepared

    Sounds great… I wonder if relatives in other states would be interested in having a copy so they know what we went through?

    I live in Tennessee and I think this is a great idea for rememberance. The downtown Nashville tornado of 1998 was captured on video by WTVF NewsChannel 5, and it’s a great video, and that it benefits agencies that jump into action when they are needed is wonderful.
