Video: July 5th Derecho Storm in Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Below is a pretty good video of the storm that pummled the Smokies on July 5th. The video was produced by the Great Smoky Mountains Association, and shows footage of the storm itself, including images from the Foothills Parkway Lookout Tower, damage from the storm, as well as radar images of the storm as it progressed across the region.

good video by GSMA, but the narration really just dies at the end. Sounds like they could use some better social media production help.
